I recently received a 2 DVD set from Ultimate Guru Music Company in India of a very interesting musical percussion artist named Taufiqu Queresh. The first thing I noticed is the quality of the box, artwork and packaging. Very well done! When you open the box there is full color booklet attached to the box so you will not loose it. The design of this project was very well thought out. The book includes photos, credits and sound explanations.

When you are buying a djembe there are numerous things to look for to assure you are buying the right drum for your self. Here is a guideline of features to be aware of and look for.
When buying a djmebe the first thing you want to look at is the wood shell. Put a towel or something soft (or card board) on the ground and turn the drum upside down. Inspect the inside of the drum carefuly using a flashlight if you have to. Look for cracks that go all the way through the drum. You have to check very carefully as the cracks are often carefully concealed and they may or may not be problematic later on in the drums life.
