A Patient Person Gets to Occupy …

The Dagomba have a rich, intricate musical and oral tradition that has allowed them to preserve their history and origins in the form of what can be referred as “dance-drumming”. A drummer’s son follows in his father’s footsteps, becoming a drummer and learning from his father the origin of the people and their kingdom. The next generation of drummers and fiddlers is seen in this image. Ilham holds a Zaabia the only instrument a girl is allowed to play.
