It with great sadness we have to announce that one of our best friends and accomplished drum builders has passed. Susan Iwaniw is at peace after a brief illness with cancer. Sandy and I had the opportunity to visit with her before she passed. At that time we decided to build a djembe in her honor. It is one that she had prepared for building. It has sold. The profits will go to Hospice, the organization that really helped Susan and her family with this sad transition.
2000 Ivory Coast Goatskins and lots of Ghana Djembe Shells! And another load is coming in today, August 5th!
Later this week or early next week, Djembe Drums & Skins will receive a pretty big air shipment from West Africa! It is is new York today!
Once our air shipment arrives we will put them her on the website and we'll announce their arrival on Facebook and maybe even a newsletter.
