Hi

Does anyone know anything about this drum? I believe it comes from Ghana. Any information would be wonderful, thanks!

Looks like twinned kpanlogos. Seems more of a souvenir item than a traditional drum.

First thing that came to mind as well, though it seem like a lot to go through for a tourist drum.

I'm curious Melanie about the resonator. Is that one big chamber or does each drumhead have it's own dedicated section? I would venture that if it's one big chamber it might not be very effective as a resonator.
