Painted Djembe Drum 8 x 16
Product ID : DP AB 1N6
The Australian Aboriginals see themselves as the custodians of the Australian country side. The paintings on this drum were originally painted in the sand and only lasted until the wind blew. Use this drum as the Aboriginals dreamed their way of life. Out of all my drums, these drums seem to have some of the best open bass tones. This is the actual painting you will receive.
