Fusing his passion for music and his instinct for modern design, Samuel Coleman crafts a djembe drum of exquisite African elegance. The base is carved by hand of local tweneboa wood and features an unfurling flower accompanied by traditional patterns. The goatskin drumhead is held in place with iron rods and nylon ropes that serve to adjust the drum's pitch.
About the Artist: Due to my interest in all things cultural things, I then decided to get involved in artworks, especially carving - drums to be specific. I am very proud to say that now I am a master training others in the art of drum-making.
