Slit drum
African musical instruments are often much more than just objects that produce sound. This slit drum or 'talking drum' is in fact a means of communication, a voice that conveys messages between the villages of an particular community. The village drummer transforms spoken language into rhytmic codes.

I choose this split drum because my grandfather used to play the igogo. I hope that this instrument can let a positive message reverberate among all those who want to hear it
