(eh-kweh)

EKWE

Extremely resonant, incredibly rich and deep tonal log drums made from the best padouk wood in Igboland, East Nigeria.

 

Available in a wide variety of sizes; these unique two-note instruments sound amazing when played together as a set! 

 

Each Ekwe is shipped with a thick coating of shea butter in order to help lubricate and  preserve the wood.

 

You can also buy a top up shea butter here

 

 

 

            Watch all the links to hear the amazing tones! 

(it's rare to find two log drums with exactly the same pitch)
