The Sageman “Lion of Judah” Djembe drum exemplifies our passion for building unique, world-class drums. These musician quality Djembes feature the emblem of Ethiopian emperor Ras Tafari – otherwise known as Haile Selassie. Key features include: exotic deep carving, hand painted gold trim and colored African tassel. All Sageman drums start with a handpicked piece of solid mahogany. The shell is precision lathe cut and then hand carved. Traditionally skinned, this drum creates an old world sound that is natural, warm and full-bodied, a sound that synthetic heads can’t produce. You won’t find another drum design like this anywhere in the world.
Please note: Our drums are made by hand and will vary in color, rope style and carving from one to the next. Slight irregularities are common
