The Djembe was used in healing ceremonies, rites of passage, ancestral worship, warrior rituals, as well as social dances. Even the creation of a Djembe drum is sacred. It is believed that the drum holds the spirit of its maker; the wood of the body, the skin of the drum head and the workmanship of the artist who made the drum.
The African American and African communities in Vegas are prominent yet it’s hard to find our place in this city. In efforts to establish a bridge of togetherness, the Africa Love store - through Da'African Village, our sister company and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Nevada - opens its doors through a bi-monthly forum called, “Pan-African Soul Sessions.” (P.A.S.S) The focus of the forum is to build a bond between the African and African American communities in our city.
