JEMBES

All of the jembes Moussa plays and sells are hand-carved by his personal drum carver, Ceman Traore, in Bamako, Mali. The jembes are carved from one piece of wood. All of the drums available are carved from "lenke" or "dugura" wood, the two woods preferred by Malian drum players. (Moussa's own drums are all made of "dugura" wood.) The wood shells are sent here to the U.S. where Moussa then assembles the heads of the drums. All drums are constructed with 2 metal rings and goat skin heads.
