Publisher description for Djembe Font

Djembe Font program icon

The Djembe Font is a typeface designed specially for African drum rhythms played on djembes, bass drums and bells. It enables you to write graphic drum notation from your keyboard in any Windows or MacIntosh program. The graphic symbols used in this notation system are based on the three basic sounds of the djembe - the high pitch Slap, the medium pitch tone and the low pitch bass. The same three symbols are also used for the sounds of the African bass drums - the small kenkeni, the medium size sangban and the large doundoun - and it can also be used for bells of different pitch. In order to distinguish between djembe, bass and bell notation you can either write which it is or simply put the corresponding instrument symbol at the beginning of each notation line.
