Created by Ghanaian artisan Akaleay, these drums are handcrafted from tweneboa wood. Akaleay works from an artisan collective on the beach in Accra's Osu neighborhood. Tweneboa wood, used extensively for crafting drums, is known for its beautiful blonde color and subtle grain. The Ashanti hold native trees in sacred regard, and traditionally entreat a tree’s spirit before felling.
