Robert K. Ghartey finds inspiration in Ghana's musical and textile traditions for the elegant design of this djembe drum. It is carved by hand from tweneboa wood featuring the unique edwene asa patterns found in kente cloths. Meaning "ultimate," edwene asa appears under the drumhead and at the base. Ghartey uses cotton twine for the upper part, which includes a goat hide drumhead secured by iron rings.
