Blacksmith wood, also called "noumou yiri" in dioula. This wood is one of the toughest and densest from West Africa. It is so-called because traditionnally blacksmiths use its embers, as they are one of the few capable to melt the metal. Its dark wood will give rather heavy djembes, which especially suit the soloists!
This djembes for sale is made in our workshop BaraGnouma at Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso, Africa). It will agree to all public, from the beginner to the professional.
The characteristics can be found in the "product details". Provided with a protection for the skin
There is a crack in the foot, however it does not reach the end of the shell, so it is not dangerous. Another is also visible at the level of the body, this one is superficial (not crossing), therefore without risk either.
