For Your Repository Viewing Pleasure: Dagomba Dance Drumming from Tufts Digital Library

Winchester, MA Dagomba dance drumming originated in the kingdom of Dagbon which is located within the West African country of Ghana on the Ivory Coast. The music consists of four combined drum parts with each individual piece of music conveying special meaning. Dagomba performers are often members of a clan of drummers whose instruments consist of the lunga (talking drum) and the gungon (bass drum).
