Introducing the Percussion Plus Slap djembe - djun djun
Djembe groups and circles are a popular activity in schools, music hubs, festivals, and your local community centre. Nothing matches the joy of making music together and these classes are not only great as music education for youngsters, but also as a fun and therapeutic activity for all ages.
The djun djun is the bass voice of the djembe ensemble, serving as the rhythmic backbone of the ensemble and underpinning the more complex, syncopated rhythms of the smaller drums. Beyond its musical role, the djun djun holds cultural significance in West African societies, often being used in ceremonies and celebrations as a means of communication and cultural expression.
It can be worn over one shoulder and played in either a sitting or standing position, typically with a pair of beaters. It produces a booming bass tone, and can be played with or without a beater.
Please note: this does not come with a beater. If you require beaters, consider purchasing a pair of PP287 or PP134 beaters, depending on your playing style.
