The rhythms and the beats of West Africa resound with festive energy with this kpalongo drum. Designed by Samuel Coleman, the drum can be used to play the conga too. The drum is hand-carved of tweneboa wood and features iron rods to tighten the goatskin drumhead.
Samuel Coleman has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $500. Proceeds were used to purchase materials for crafting his traditional African drums.
Samuel was out of work for over a year with his back condition. Because of his inability to work, he lost all of his assistants that help him in his production.
Samuel has three children under the age of ten that he supports.
