Standard key-tuned djembe with 6 lugs, with the Kinte kloth design shell in bright orange, green, red, yellow and black. The Kinte Kloth design is printed on one of the new fabric finishes in Remoâ??s DESIGNERâ??S TOUCH graphic arts line. It gives this shell the look of hand woven tapestry. Remo djembes are based upon the traditional drums of the West African Mandingo people, originating from the great Mali Empire of the 13th and 14th century. In Africa, one of the Djembe's functions is as a healing drum. Remo Djembes are based on the same traditional Djembe tone and form combined with Remo's modern advances including a wide range of tuning systems, heads, finishes and sizes.
