Great turnout for the Knox Djembe Drumming Workshop organized by Colleen C. with instructor Milton Randall. What a lot of Fun!
A djembe or jembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa.
The name of the djembe comes from the saying "Anke djé, anke bé" which translates to "everyone gather together in peace" and defines the drum's purpose.
A skilled drummer is one who "can make the djembe talk", meaning that the player can tell an emotional story.
Watch the video below to listen to our stories - the instructor invited everyone to play loudly and with passion - this snippet is the group attempting to "solo"
