We recently had a video shoot with MEINL artist Beto Torrens from Puerto Rico focusing on the Djembe as well as other MEINL percussion instruments like Congas, Shekeres and Claves.
This video is entitled "Congo Ta' Llamando" and is the first video of the series. The music for these series is part of a new project that Beto and his group IGBIN are releasing this year with original music.
jumbo Series Djembes
What is so special about the new Jumbo Serie? Of course, it‘s lightweight and an easy-to-use tuning system. If you want to create deep bass tones and cutting high sounds, you have to try them! You can choose between fancy-designed heads and simple white heads.
Rope Tuned Travel Series
Those Djembes are perfect for everyone: you can play them in a drum circle, as a professional musician but also as a beginner. Due to their lightweight and rope-based tuning system, it’s easy for you to carry them wherever you want. Enjoy the comfortable feel and authentic sound!
"Congo Ta' Llamando"
The Djembe in the video is the 14" Artisan Edition Djembe which not only looks stunning but also sounds amazing. Beto is a master Djembe player and makes this instrument sound really good so make sure you listen to the videos with good headphones or high quality speakers so you can hear the spectrum of sounds coming out of this MEINL Djembe.
