Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of
articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The
talking drum is a West African drum whose pitch can be regulated to
the extent that it is said the drum "talks." Talking drums are some
of the oldest instruments used by west African griots and their
history can be traced back to the Ghana Empire. The Hausa people
(and by influence, the Yoruba people of south western Nigeria and
Benin and the Dagomba of northern Ghana) have developed a highly
sophisticated genre of griot music centering on the talking drum.
Many variants of the talking drum exist, with essentially the same
construction mentioned above.
