The Drum Circle Djembe by Africa Heartwood Project is designed to offer a budget drum for the beginner drummer whose priority is to get a playable djembe for the lowest possible price. These are real djembes, handcarved in Ghana, and are suitable for a drummer who is interested in recreational rhythm making. These drums are typical of what you would find at an open-air market in Ghana, are likely the type of drum-souvenir most tourists take home with them after a holiday in Africa, and is an improvement on most drums exported from Indonesia. The wood that typically doesn't meet quality control for our Classic Djembe drums is used for the Drum Circle Djembe drums, and allows for some blemishes such as minor wood repairs, or softer wood. The Drum Circle Heartwood Djembes tend to look exotic and eye-catching, but lack some of the quality details that finer djembes built for technical drumming have.
