Fair Trade Artisans: Indonesia The djembe is a hand drum, which means NO STICKS! Be careful not to puncture the real goat skin. When learning to play the djembe there are 3 main sounds: Base, Tone and Slap. By lightly bouncing your palm in the middle you get base, towards the edge the fingers of your open hand can strike the skin to make the higher pitched "tone" sound. A quick, well placed tap, similar to the tone strike will make the sharp "slap" sound - the hardest to make, but you will know it when you hear it. The important thing is to have fun so experiment and find what sounds best to you.
