Workshop progress

During this workshop, you will learn how to choose wood for its acoustic qualities. You can test the sounds of several tree trunks and different species before choosing yours.

You will learn to use hand tools such as a rasp, a plane, a wood chisel and of course varnishing. Then we assemble the goatskin and the knots woven on the three metal hoops in order to move on to assembling the djembe.

Already the first clear sounds will begin to sound. What better way to approach woodworking and goatskin in a simple way? The djembe is man's first instrument. And since the first men, techniques have evolved!

You will discover the finishing work that will refine your percussion as much as their sound.
