The djembe drum is one of the most famous African drums. It originated in West Africa. The djembe drum is believed to have been invented in the 12th century by the Malinke tribe in what is now Mali, West Africa. Djembés are traditionally made of wood and metal and goatskin and played with bare hands.
The djembé drum has a light and fiery sound. The fingers and palms are used to play the drum. Its voice is very versatile and can produce a number of different sounds: bass, tone and slap.
The djembé drum is made of a hollowed wooden body and looks somewhat like a chalice. Its particular shape contributes to its unique sound, both the skin and stringing.
Each drum has its own personal sound, it can sound suitable for a solo voice or yet better as an accompanying instrument. Come and choose your personal Djembé in our store. Whether a child's drum or a beginner's model up to a master class djembé, we have everything in stock and can advise you professionally.
We also carry matching bags, instruction books etc.
We've also been repairing Djmbés for over 25 years.
If you want to buy musical instruments (in Switzerland or elsewhere), we want to be your store of choice. Dunum was born out of love for music, for sound, for vibration. On countless journeys we got to know many different instruments and sounds, which inspired us and which we would like to share with you now. We want to produce and offer musical instruments of quality and thus win your heart for world music. That's why we brought the diverse sounds from our travels and now pass them on to you. In our store you will find not only gongs, but also sound chimes, wind chimes, didgeridoos, singing bowls and much more. Have fun browsing!
