Sageman Drums is proud to announce its representation in America of Bouba Percussion, makers of quality percussion instruments from the West African country of Guinea.
The hardwood of Guinean trees is perfectly suited for percussion instruments. It’s extremely warp resistant and is extremely durable and produces a wonderful rich sound. Sageman Drums imports only Djembes made from three hardwoods: Lenge, Acajou, and Hare. The Djembe heads are made of superior goatskins from Mali. Sageman Drums is now working with a group of experienced Malinké drum makers who assure quality results from the falling of mature hand-picked trees and cutting into rough shapes near Dabola in Upper Guinea, to the finishing designs and head stretching at Bouba’s workshop in Conakry’s Madina district. Additionally, this region has a reputation for producing some of the best Djembes in the world.
Our Guinean Djembes are available in a variety of carving styles and wood types. We recommend calling our offices before placing your order to review the available options. Get your one of a kind, top of the line Guinean Djembe while supplies last!
