Details

A dynamic design and richly-carved surface distinguish this handsome drum by Samuel Coleman. Its merging Ashanti biakuye symbols express unity and oneness. The kpanlogo drum is a revered element in the music and culture of the Ga tribe in Ghana's Greater Accra region, marking the rhythm for the traditional kpanlogo dance. However, its characteristic deep, loud sound makes it a popular instrument throughout West Africa. Coleman crafts this beautiful drum of tweneboa wood, affixing its calfskin drum head to wooden pegs with stout ropes. It is burnished to a rich sheen with brown and mansion polish.

An ideal gift for the world music aficionado, its joyous rhythms fill any environment with the spirit of biakuye.

I have this precious African drum displayed on the wall on a stand for all to see. I have had many compliments and everyone has been impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the drum. I am very pleased with the purchase and it was well worth the money that was spent for it.

"What a Beautiful Suprise"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I received this djembe drum after about 1 month from my order and I am blown away by the quality of the drum. Its wonderful to know that I have a piece of art thats been made with love and care over something manufactured in a factory. Money spent on art is money well-spent and I am happy my money has gone to a real person with true mastery of his craft. highly recommend this drum to anyone who wants a unique and genuine djembe from Africa. The sheepskin is also such an interesting texture and very unique to this drums tyle. love it!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Samuel Coleman has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $500. Proceeds were used to purchase materials for crafting his traditional African drums.

Samuel was out of work for over a year with his back condition. Because of his inability to work, he lost all of his assistants that help him in his production.

Samuel has three children under the age of ten that he supports.
