Here's another unusual drum (check out the Hang drum below if you haven't seen it. Milltone drums are made in the US, hard to get and expensive, I'm bidding for one on e-bay at the moment ! They have a very soft sound from them and are very relaxing and soothing to listen too, unusual to say about drums :)
Have a look at this video , you can see and hear what I mean !

Just found this on another blog :
Sept 25 2008 "28 years ago today we lost, in my opinion, the best drummer of all time. Some may say others have more defined drumming skills, but no one can deny the power, the passion and the unique style that was his alone. He's inspired so many others over the years, including his own son, Jason who proudly continues his father's legacy."
"With Zeppelin, I tried to play something different every night in my solos. I'd play for 20 minutes but the longest ever was 30 minutes. It's a long time, but whenI was playing it seemed to fly by" J.Bonham

If you want to know how djembe is played or what it is all about , watch a Master at play here, there is nothing more amazing than seeing someone so talented play an instrument. Mamady Keita seems like an incredibly healthy person (and djembefola) in mind, soul, and body. His centeredness and integrity, I feel, are reflected in his playing - they come through crystal clear!
