BAULE, DRUMS, Ivory Coast

The Baule are one of the Akan peoples. They moved west to the Ivory Coast more than 200 years ago and adopted sculptural and masking traditions from their neighbors, the Guro, Senufo and Yaure peoples.

African drums were musical instruments, ceremonial objects and means of communication. The drums range from everyday objects with monumental, simple forms to ornate pieces bringing status to the owner, connoting power and the honoring of ancestors.

We recommend Baule: African Art Western Eyes by Susan M. Vogel (Yale). We have copies for sale at $40.
