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. DeerHawke Baker and Djembe Drums & Skins, Inc created djembe out of one of Susan Iwaniw's shells. It was purchased by Rob Reid of My Cauldron in West DeLand, FL). It will be the shop drum and will be passed around in a drumming memorial for her on Oct 15 at My Cauldron. the profit from the djembe will be donated to the hospice that was so helpful to both Susan and her sister. https://www.thehospicefoundation.org/
