Originating on the West Coast of Africa (the Gold Coast), Djembe drums are now heard in almost all African music. The versatile design couples the conical drum shape with a seat mounted on a single pedestal.

For over 40 years, artist/musician team, Bill and Mary Buchen, have designed public art installations and interactive sound sculptures for parks, schools, science centers, transit stations, children’s museums and playgrounds around the world. Their artworks invite active play and group participation; whether tapping rhythms on percussion instruments inspired by global music cultures or investigating environmental phenomena.

Designed to engage all ages and skill levels in communal music making and sonic explorations, their innovative sound sculptures are available either individually or as an integrated ensemble for any outdoor recreational or educational setting. All are precision fabricated in the USA of powder–coated or stainless steel and designed for ultimate durability, low maintenance and easy bolt-down installation.
