A Djembe (or pronounced 'Jem- bay') is an African Drum which you play with your bare hands. People have this intrinsic need to create music. If they don't have an instrument they will create one. If they can't create one they will often make the music come out of themselves via humming, whistling or some other expression. Thankfully I have this Djembe to pound on so I don't have to create music from within myself.
