Djembefola, Song of the Mandinka

The Djembe is a rope-tuned skin-covered goblet drum from West Africa. The name derives from the phrase “Anke djé, anke bé”, “everyone gather together in peace” and defines the drum’s purpose. A Djembefola is an expert player.  Here’s a better expainationi from African poet, Aremu Adams.  It’s from the Spring issue ot 3rd Wednesday which will be in the mail to subscribers and contributors soon.
