The term World Percussion carries a variety of references – from Hand Drums to Hand-Held Percussion. Congas from Cuba, Djembes from West Africa, Cajons from Peru – each instrument has a history enriched in the culture of their origins. What may have started out as simply a way to describe this unique collection of instruments, the term World Percussion has evolved in much the same way “World Beat” can describe a multitude of musical styles. For many percussionists, understanding the uniqueness and applications for the different instruments from around the world can be a lifetime of study and may even require a specialization in a certain grouping of drums. Also the accessibility for musicians to hear actual indigenous recordings of these drums is now greater than ever allowing for a more accurate performance and approach than ever before. Additionally the availability and quality of what started out as basically home-made products ensures that pretty much any world percussion instrument will be usable in any setting. Woodwind & Brasswind carries the largest selection of Percussion instruments and accessories at the best prices from today’s top brands Like LP, Pearl, Meinl, Remo and more.
