Daniel asante carves an extraordinary djembe drum from tweneboa wood. He depicts solemn faces in high relief that gaze thoughtfully from the base. Illustrating a wise saying, its name tikoro nkoagyina is an Akan word meaning “two heads are better than one.” the djembe originated in Benin, where it is used during voodoo rites, and has been introduced into neighboring countries. It is indispensable in contemporary reggae. The goatskin head is affixed by iron rings wrapped in cotton, and a macrame cord can be slung over the shoulder.
