Drums are among the most important art forms in Africa, used both as a musical instrument and as a work of sculpture significant in many ceremonial functions, including dance, rituals, story-telling and communication of messages.

This drum has been vetted as authentic, with signs of use and age.

The head on this drum is intact, but not really playable.
