"I love Remo products and have been using them for years in my drum circles and music improvisation workshops! I have a set of 20 kids djembes that I have used non-stop for the past 14 years and although they are extremely well used, they still bring great joy to my drum circle participants of all ages! Remo products are great sounding, incredibly durable, easy to maintain, colorful and portable, what more could a drum circle facilitator ask for? I so appreciate the fact that the Remo corporation creates many of their products from recycled materials and is such a great supporter and promoter of recreational music making world-wide!"
