The customs of the Lobi people inspire Abubakari Alhassan to replicate this traditional stool, usually reserved for visiting friends. Their tribal name, Lobi, means "children of the forest," and they originate fro Burkina Faso, Cote d'Ivoire and northern Ghana. They believe it is a sign of respect to offer this stool to guests, as a sign of welcoming hospitality and respect. It is also used in the kitchen when cooking.

Beautiful, well crafted brekete drum, will buy from this artist again.



As a gift to a musician friend, I recently purchased a Goji calabash piano. The both of us were extremely impressed with the craftmanship, detail, color and sound of the instrument. Mr. Alhassan is a wonderful artist, and it is a pleasure to eye, the mind and the soul to look at and hear this wonderful instrument. I wish him much success.
