From Wikipedia: A djembe or jembe (/ˈdʒɛmbeɪ/ JEM-bay; from Malinke jembe [dʲẽbe]) is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. According to the Bambara people in Mali, the name of the djembe comes from the saying "Anke djé, anke bé" which translates to "everyone gather together in peace" and defines the drum's purpose. In the Bambara language, "djé" is the verb for "gather" and "bé" translates as "peace."
Growing up I ALWAYS loved when they brought these drums out when there were music classes in elementary schools. I remember throughout going to elementary and middle school as a kid, that they don’t really have music classes anymore, and kids hardly ever get to play with REAL instraments nowadays. I think once I hit 5th grade or so, they started taking the instraments away.
It has been a DREAM to actually make one of these drums. I mean look at it, ITS ART! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾👑🥁🥁✨#SupportBlackArt #DjembeDrums #Mali #WestAfricanGirl
