Why buy a djembe case made in China in an online shop or music store, if you can support Africa instead? Let me introduce a special guy to you:
Ras is part of a team of young tailors in Ghana, West Africa, that specializes on all sorts of cool African bags. Together, they sew themselves out of poverty. These guys are a wonderful example of a typical African micro business: They want no foreign aid nor charity to feed their families and send their kids to school. All they need is happy customers!
I love their work and think they deserve a chance. Here is what they have to offer:
Quality Rasta Djembe Case
This look is a favorite in the whole of West Africa:
Every young African drummer I know owns at least one piece of clothing or bag with this look.
A must-have for any djembe player!
Of course, your bag will look slightly different from the one in the picture: Each case is hand-made and unique. Nobody else will have the exact same bag!
Because Ras has been supplying drummers for years, he knows what's important to you:
Spend less time packing and more time jamming
The handy tightening system makes packing and unpacking a snap. Most importantly, it ensures that your drum is tightly and securely wrapped.
Chill out without worries
Drumming events are there to enjoy, not to make you worry about your djembe getting damaged. A thick pad protects the hide effectively. In fact, the whole bag is padded and very sturdy to avoid scratches and holes.
Fits you and your drum
Easily adjust the padded shoulder straps to carry your drum more comfortably. The bag is designed to fit standard size djembes with a 13"-diameter head and 25" hight.
I'm so sorry, Ras' djembe cases are currently out of Stock. Please check again later.
In the meantime, I recommend the djembe bags sold by Heartwood Project on Amazon.com. These do NOT have the same features as the cases made by Ras and his team, but you can be assured that these bags are made in West Africa as well:
