Product Description:
In the northern region of Ghana, the kingdom of Dagbon has existed for five centuries. In that kingdom, the royal family has a hierarchy that includes the playing of drums by each member. In this 58-minute film, the talking drums that are such a part of this kingdom's culture are examined. This video was filmed in the villages that surround the kingdom's capital, and it's a solid look at the role of drums in the lives of those who live in the region. Masters of the drums are those who train for decades to play the drums to both entertain and to guide their culture morally. These drummers are also the historians of their people. The film includes performances by several of the kingdom's drummers. View a Preview Clip

the video preview on drums of dagbon was well done; i would have loved to watch the entire product but do not think that the product is over valued, and for that reason alone, I choose not to buy it.
