West African Goat Skin - Thick Shaved from Africa Heartwood Project

West African Goat Skin - Thick Shaved from

This goat skin offers the convenience of simply wetting and installation, saving you the time and hassle of shaving the hair. The "thick" thickness shaved goat skin is suitable for most standard size djembes, and will provide the classic djembe sound with low bass, medium tones, and high, clear slaps. The thicker selection will produce stronger tones and will stand up to more tension than a thin or "standard" skin. Each skin is selected from our on-hand inventory of shaved goat hides from Mali, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Senegal, and Burkina Faso, and inspected for natural flaws or defects that could affect sound or longevity of the skin. Hair color and skin pigmentation vary, with the majority of top layer skin pigment being greyish-brown (shave deeper for whiter skin color). Skin Warranty: Before shipping each skin is inspected for natural flaws that may affect longevity or sound, and we will accept returns of new skins if a natural blemish is found upon arrival. Because the shaving, soaking, mounting, drying, and tuning processes ares subject to the skill of the drum builder, and to the natural strength of the skin, we cannot warranty skins once they have been soaked or shaved.

Music of Sierra Leone, Vol. 6 - Mende of Moyamba

Music of Sierra Leone, Vol. 6 - Mende

This CD is the sixth volume of an anthology of traditional Sierra Leonean music produced by Luke Wassermann. It was recorded live in 2007 in the district headquarter town of Moyamba, and features the Salina Cultural Dance Troupe, a group formed during the civil war while the members were staying at the Kissy Dockyard refugee camp in Freetown. The group sings (and tells one story) in Mende, the most widely spoken tribal language in Sierra Leone. The instruments that provide most exciting rhythmic variation are the keleng, a cylindrical, hollowed out wooden block with three slits on the top, and the shegbere (pictured on the front cover). The sangba and gbeteh drums provide the irresistible grooves on which the music relies, while Kadiatu Williams, the lead female vocalist sings both the inspirational and sorrowful. The 12-page booklet included in the package contains eight color photographs, four song translations, historical information about the Mende and background information about Moyamba and the Salina Cultural Dance Troupe.
