African Traditions

Starland Music Ltd

One of our specialities is finding good quality drums and percussion for our many customers who run successful African drumming classes. Most popular is our selection of ‘Djembe Drums’, which now has three separate galleries  (below) catering for all ages and budgets. Our "Djembe - budget range" is the ideal place to source real drums for primary school classes.  

'Senior -sized Djembes' and other African Drums can also be seen below, whilst traditional Calabash shakers, seed shakers, thunder shakers and cowbells are grouped together under African Handheld Percussion & Books.

Schools! Don't forget to sign-in to your Starland Music account (top of this page) or create one, to view your special 'Education only' prices!
