Originally from West Africa, the name djembe comes from "Anke djé, anke bé", an expression of the Bambara people of Mali, which means "let us all come together in peace". The djembé is a sonically versatile instrument, and it is possible to extract various sounds using various hand and playing techniques, either solo or accompanying other instruments.
Toca Percussion's mission is not only to create the best percussion instruments in the world, but also to protect the environment in doing so. The goal is to create products that are natural and full of identity. Handcrafted work also makes each djembé unique.
The Origin series offers hand-carved instruments from wood grown in sustainable plantations, with concern for the environment, and treated in solar-powered ovens.
