Madagascar Djembes
« on: January 11, 2018, 08:22 PM »
I'm pretty knowledgeable about djembes, but there's one thing I don't know.  Are there many djembes made in Madagascar?  If they are made in significant numbers, are they made because there's a market for them or because of the culture?

I know, I know.  Djembes are West African drums, but who knows?  Maybe the djembe actually originated in Madagascar and was adopted and flourished in West Africa to such an extent that Madagascar djembes were overshadowed.  ???

By the way, I recently met such a drum.
