  1. The drums are from Ghana. They are peg drums, where the skin is sown with rope and stretched over the rim. Then six (or so) 10 inch carved pegs are driven into the wood shell a few inches below the rim, creating a skein of rope held taunt when slid over the pegs. Odadaa is group that plays music from the Ga people of Ghana, most all of them are Ga. You can search “Ga drums” or “Kpanlogo drums” to find out more. They also use one square box drum called a Gome drum. Another one is called a kroboto, that’s a short peg drum.

    Good luck.

  2. Can you please provide me with more information on the instruments you used for the Congo Square performance? I am interested in the African instruments created by slaves.
    I would like to use the information for a class demonstration.
