light weight Djembe  
light weight Djembe

These drums are made from Tweneboa a lighter wood. The Latin species name for Tweneboa is Cordia platythyrsa. The tree occurs all over West Africa, including Ghana, Guinea, and Côte d'Ivoire (among other countries). The tree grows to 30 m in height, with a diameter of 1 m. Tweneboa is available in three different grades: white, yellow, and red. The different grades come from the same tree; white Tweneboa from the top section, yellow Tweneboa from the middle section, and red Tweneboa from the section near the bottom. Obviously, the wood near the bottom of the tree is oldest and has the most weight to carry. This means that the wood is harder and denser than wood from the middle or top section. In theory, this also should make it more suitable as a djembe wood. (The density and hardness of the wood plays a big role in giving a djembe its voice; traditional djembe woods, such as Lenke, are at the upper end of of the hardness and density scales.)
