What makes you feel the sound of the Djembe?

What makes you feel the sound of the Djembe?

Friends, just today a very curious person arrived at the DRUM to know how the Djembes sound? How do you play? Where is the Djembe from? and everything related to him, what struck me the most when I touched the djembe a bit is that the person asked me, "What do you feel when you touch it? Are you feeling the same as me?
And I stayed like Oprah Winfrey ...

And it is that several questions arose in me ...
Why do we like the sounds of certain instruments? Why do we like music? Why do they make us feel sad, happy, fearful or cabalistic?

There are too many explanations in music on this subject and the structures or rules of certain sounds that make us feel in certain ways but ... If there are rules, why is it so subjective?
(Subjective means that it depends a lot on a person's feelings.)

In my opinion, I think that each person clearly has a judgment regarding the music they have heard for a long time, for example, if your parents listened to a very sparse music since childhood, your brain is most likely adapted to musical changes and you can enjoy music from a Vivaldi to an extreme such as Caribbean music.


So what makes us feel a Djembe?
The main thing you should know is that if you've never heard a djembe live, your first impression would be ...

Mine, for example, was feeling sounds of nature, totally Africa, reassured me, but at the same time made me appreciate the talent and technique that is needed not only to play it properly, but also the artisanal work in them.

The djembes, bongos, dun dun, ashikos or whatever musical instrument you will always give an interpretation depending on the way your brain works musically.

So, if you want to know what a Djembe sounds like, the best way to do it would be by listening to African music because we don't value all those rhythms because it is not a power on platforms like YouTube, etc.

Remember that you can come to the Tamboreria to take basic workshops to learn percussion and then you can show your friends that you are a Djembe pro.
