Bamileke Drums

Postby jimkerryhelmer » Fri May 21, 2010 3:19 am

I am a huge admirer of the Bamileke drums from Cameroon. Most of them are carved by master carvers and are beautiful. There is also a very unique sound to these drums. I would love to own as many of these drums as possible.

Love the sound of those drums! I lived in Cameroun for three years in the 70's. Beautiful country!
