Sadly, Abdoul passed away in October 2019 after complications from a routine operation. Shortly before he died he imported a big shipment of drums back from Guinea, which are now being sold off by his brother Mohamed, based in Plumstead Common, London.
They are beautiful sounding authentic instruments imported from Conakry in Guinea. All sizes below are approximate as every drum is handmade and totally unique.
Quote “Laurence” when you get in touch and Mohamed will provide you with a great service.
Appointments and purchases can only be arranged by phone – please contact Mohamed to organise a time to visit his house in Plumstead Common:

Discounts are available for schools and charities who wish to buy in bulk.
All djembes are sold untuned, which means that the tone sound will be fairly low pitched, and the slap sound will have resonant overtones. Visit our djembe page to learn how to tune your djembe up once you’ve bought it so that it will sound tight and crisp! When choosing a djembe try to select one with a goat skin without any blemishes as it will be less likely to tear. Heavier djembes tend to sound nicer, but are obviously harder to transport around with you!
Here is a video to show you just how great Abdoul’s djembes sound – we are very happy with our drums and would highly recommend them to anyone! R.I.P. Abdoul.
