The kagoma is a traditional musical instrument in nearly all African ceremonies. Our kagoma drums come from many African cultures. Artisans hand-carve large djembe drums from a single piece of hollowed wood. The goatskin top is stretched and held in place by long braided nylon and cotton cords. Some drums have designs etched into the base and fabric trim along the top. The miniature drums serve as exceptional home decorations and are great for kids.
