Jamtown World Instruments
Ocean Gourd Drum - Jamtown World Instruments
Decorated with fish by artisans using traditional burning techniques, this 10-inch diameter handmade gourd drum with goat skin includes a drumstick and playing instructions. Rolling the drum produces sounds similar to waves washing up on the shore.
Meet the Artisans
The Jamtown vision sees people in North America creating music with friends and family. Not fancy rock songs or orchestra performances, just a little music. Starting with our motto "Play A Beat You Can Repeat" we make it easy and fun for kids AND adults to join the band. Our instruments are special, authentic, and beautifully crafted. Each is handmade ~ from countries all over the world. Artisans utilize ancient knowledge and natural, sustainable materials like bamboo, gourds, and seeds. For the cost of a single cheap guitar, which no one will use, pass out cool instruments to a group of friends and expect to sound good,and feel good! As a member of the Fair Trade Federation we work with small producer groups from developing countries and provide important support to low-income families through fair wages and other valuable assistance.
