Moreover, in Burkina Faso, rainfall is rather limited and there is the densest and hardest wood in this part of Africa.
This djembe has been cut in the heart of a dry wood of about 4 years, which will guarantee a perfectly stable instrument.
Exceptionally big, it will provide a unique sound with incredible volume.
The weight is rather large, more than 15 kg. It will be better to play it sitting than standing up.
