Jamtown works directly with artisans, cooperatives and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO's) in six countries on three continents to produce beautiful instruments made in the traditional manner of the artisans. The work of Jamtown provides support to low-income families through fair wages, order prepayment, marketing and other assistance. Each instrument is unique, has a unique story, and sounds great, too. Jamtown has been in the homes of many of the artisans, and so you can be assured that your instrument has origins that are known, from a person with a face and a name whose life is being enriched by your purchase.
