Rhythm fills the air as a man plays the renowned "talking drum" of West Africa. Proudly wearing traditional kente cloth, he pounds an intricate cadence that carries a message from village to village. Emmanuel Atiemoh Yeboa portrays the drummer in oils on calico, adding cutouts of kente cloth. The colorful composition arrives in a ceiba wood frame.
