Details

Daniel Asante carves an extraordinary djembe drum from tweneboa wood. He depicts solemn faces in high relief that gaze thoughtfully from the base. Illustrating a wise saying, its name Tikoro Nkoagyina is an Akan word meaning "two heads are better than one." The djembe originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites, and has been introduced into neighboring countries. It is indispensable in contemporary reggae. The goatskin head is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macramé cord can be slung over the shoulder.

"Perfect"

I love Moon Shadow. It is very romantic, dream like and soft. It hangs in my livingroom along with a few Dreamcatchers . It looks fabulous.

"BEAUTIFUL!"

For a smaller drum, this work of art has a deeper resonating sound. Dont be fooled by hits small stature! Tuned perfectly! :)

"The detail is stunning"

I like to sit in another chair across the room and stare at this one. It?s simply an amazing piece of art that is great to sit on, they have withstood the teenaged football players test. I plan to purchase a few more from this artist.
