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
Matica's performance was raucous and good natured, alternately exciting their audience and calming them with music. The children were delighted by the vast array of exotic instruments and, without knowing it, got a terrific geography lesson. We would happily welcome Matica back to Hartford Public Library again and we encourage other libraries to have them.
