Re-capturing my youth with my new Djembe

I previously mentioned that I used to play percussion and people said they enjoyed watching me play the bongos and congas, but I always wanted a djembe. They have a beautiful, deep sound and I can draw out sounds similar to those heard on both the bongos and congas with the right touch.

This djembe was hand-crafted in Mali in western Africa. I got a great deal on it at Guitar Center in Kirkland, WA, while looking at electric drum sets. While I’d rather have an accoustic set like my previous Tama Rockstar I sold early in college, the decreasing lot sizes in Puget Sound could lead to problems with the noise.

I know this djembe will bring me lots of joy and maybe I can even get involved with a group and play down at the Market sometime. I do miss playing for a croud.
