Dagomba


This is an excerpt of some field recordings which were recorded by Nana Kimati Dinizulu in the Northern Region of Ghana, West Africa. [The Dagomba people inhabit the northern savannah of Ghana.] The music featured in this segment is performed by Fusani Tia on Jenjeli, which is a one string instrument of the Dagomba people and his son Muhammad Kusani who plays Denkenkelen, an idiophone made of iron. This is an ancient form of music that is now played by few musicians.
