A woman plays unheard melodies on a traditional African instrument known in Twi as the seperewa, a stringed instrument belonging to the lute family. Ghana's Nii Addo paints this composition in the expressionist style, framing the woman with colors of red and orange and accenting the canvas with his characteristic glittering paste. He reflects on the way that the seperewa is typically associated with men, suggesting that women can play it just as well, if not even better.
