Ernestina Oppong Asante presents this handcrafted dondo drum, its hourglass figure veiled in cords of fishermen's thread, strung tautly to tune the opposing goatskin drumheads. Various tribes in Ghana employ the dondo. It has an influential sound when accompanying other instruments because the hollow body of tweneboa wood resonates powerfully.

This chair is so beautiful. Love, Love, Love. I will shop again. Thank you so much




Received the beautiful ""Botanical Beat"" Djembe on time. Is is so beautiful in details - great Master Piece of art from you. In addition, it sounds so great. I took it to a drum circle and everyone wanted to touch it and to play with it. All in all, thank you, Ms Asante, for making this awesome Djembe. Tony. WI. USA. 5/2015
