Ashikos originated from the Yoruba culture, in what is now present-day West Africa. At West Music, we're proud to offer several different versions to our customers in order to infuse global awareness and appreciation into classroom settings. Our line of ashiko drums brought to you by some of the world's best percussion manufacturers - Remo and Toca. All offerings are lightweight, compact, and nestable. This makes them perfect for traveling or keeping neatly packed up if you're limited by space. Moreover, Remo ashikos and Toca timbau drums are all extremely durable in order to withstand the not-so-gentle hands of young students in the classroom or in music therapy. Shop today at West Music; your students are sure to love the vibrant rhythms and colorful designs of all our ashiko hand drums.
