Aurthur Toombs has a passion for djembe drums. When the weather improves you can find him — almost daily — on 125th in Harlem performing. He’s passionate, talented and cares about the culture. You can also find him performing at events or preserving the djembe culture by teaching the next generations of aspiring drummers.
