Feel the rhythm of an ancient culture with our hand-made Dagomba Drum from Ghana. Handcrafted by the tribesmen of Ghana, the Dagomba drum was the same drum used in ancient African festivals and rituals. This drum produces a unique deep sound, which it is named for. The Dagomba tribe of Northern Ghana celebrates their warrior ritual festival at night and the sound of this drum roars like a dragon.

    Ghanian drums are excellent for beginners. They are a bit rough in appearance, but it suits the price point and after all they are made by hand! The sound is ok; you may need to tune it or find someone who knows how. Good value.

    Verified Purchase

    I am a professional percussionist for many years. So for me, ordering instruments on the internet without playing them first is very risky. You can't tell what they sound and play like. This one really delivered! The skins are good quality thick goat hide. The shell is beautifully carved and resonates the tone beautifully. Similar drums often sell for alot more money. I very much appreciate it guys. Thanks so much! Bret C.

    Verified Purchase

    At this price this is an incredible deal. The only way it could be better is if it were cow skin instead of goat, but you can always replace the skin later. The drum itself is very well made, and I expect it to last a long time. For those who are more familiar with west African drums the sound of this drum is comparable to a sangba, or sangban, and that is actually what I use it for.
