Keur Djembe was created by Ibrahima Diokhane a native of Senegal, West Africa but a New Yorker for the past 25 years.

He began making drums at the age of 12 out of any materials he could find. When he immigrated to NY he was a street vendor but always had a djembe with him. People always inquired about buying his djembe or fixing one for them.
