Toca Sheila E Signature Ash Wood Bongos
A force to be reckoned with, Sheila E. is a true prodigy on percussion, with scintillating solo work and performances with top artists including Prince, Diana Ross, Beyoncé, Babyface, Jennifer Lopez, and Ringo Starr.
The trilogy of Bongos & Congas,speaks to her spiritual values that transcend her acknowledged mastery of percussion and drum set. Toca is committed to being green and environmentally-friendly. The wood we use is harvested from a plantation in Indonesia, where our drums are then lathed and handcrafted by local musicians. This carefully managed resource is much easier on the environment than wood taken from primary forests.
