About Talking Drums.


The talking drum is an hourglass-shaped drum from West Africa, whose pitch can be regulated to mimic the tone and rhythm of human speech. It has two drumheads connected by leather tension cords, which allow the player to control the pitch of the drum by squeezing the cords between his or her arm and body.

Back in the ancient days of the Ashanti Empire, it was used as a form of communication, a sort of a morse code of such. The goal of this website is to be a talking drum between for Ghanaians all over the world,

Talkingdrums is a place where Ghanaians and those interested in Ghana can talk, inform, get advice, get help, educate, joke, vent, learn, debate,etc. It is the place to go to see what Ghanaians REALLY think about the issues going on in their country and the world.
