Pan-African colors are the perfect accompaniment to a selection of traditional musical instruments chosen by Prince Dewodo. Painting with acrylics, the Ghanaian artist depicts a djembe drum in the center with a xylophone on the upper left, and an axatse on the right. Carved of dried gourd, this rattle from the Volta Region is covered with a net of seeds or beads. A high-pitched calabash drum is depicted on the lower left and the gankogui is on the right. Considered the foundation of traditional Ewe music, this forged iron double bell is played with a wooden stick to emit a low-pitched sound (often referred to as the parent bell), and a high-pitched sound (or child bell) said to rest at the bosom of the protective parent.
