Joel and Heidi of Matica build d'jembes and other wooden drums starting with ecologically-harvested logs. They carve drums by hand using a chisel and do orginal and custom designs. Matica also sells eco slat-style djun djuns and oil drum djun djuns.
DRUM REPAIR is also available. Drum Doctor Joel Melendez. Highly regarded for fixing d'jembes and other skin drums. A complete overhaul or a just tuning- whatever your drum needs
We seem to keep crossing professional paths with Heidi and Joel of Matica and every project has been such a pleasure. Each time we collaborate it's completely different and they never cease to amaze us with the depth of their many talents. Their energy is adventurous and fun.
