Akwaaba specialises in the sale of djembe drums, African handicraft, baskets, textiles, musical instruments, books and lots more! We are pleased to stock Perth's largest and most varied range of authentic, hand carved African djembes. We can also reskin and tune your African drum. The majority of our products are sourced from Ghana and are purchased directly from the person who has made it. So when you purchase from Akwaaba you know that your money is helping support families and communities in Africa. All our products have a story to tell - from the carvings on our djembes to the journey of the Bolga baskets making it to market to be sold.
We currently trade at the Wanneroo Markets (Shop 68/69) in Wangara, Fridays-Sundays from 9.30am to 4.30pm. As the djembes are all hand made (carved in Ghana, skinned and tuned by Paul here in Perth) every one will look and sound different. We encourage you to come into the shop and have a play so that you find a drum that you like the sound and also look of.
