Kente Talking Drum 10" - J0143
Made in Ghana - Item# J0143
The perfect little drum that plays big! The talking drum sent messages from village to village by producing a range of notes that could pass information - like Morse code! Or I should say, Morse code was like the talking drum! Squeezing the cowhide strips under a bent arm while striking creates low to high notes and everything in between. Kente cloth wrap gives it POP even when on the shelf. Approx 10" tall x 5" head. Includes curved stick. Fairly traded.
