eb10175 nv13503 nv4102 nv68902 nv64602 TL6 SL0 Wood bougarabou drum, 'Collar'
The name of this drum, Bougarabou, is onomatopoeia for the captivating rhythm it produces. Artisans of Bomukasa Limited present the instrument, its resonant body crafted from the natural luxury of tweneboa wood. A simple collar on the base provides visual contrast, as well as enhancing the overall tone. The drum features a goatskin-striking surface, held firm by iron rod rings wrapped in cotton cloth to prevent rusting. Nylon ropes securely fasten the rings, the sturdy design enhancing the overall visual allure. Lends a rustic musical accent to any setting. Finished in mansion polish.
Artist: Louis K. Botchway and Bomukasa

Biography of Louis K. Botchway and Bomukasa
Bomukasa focuses on rural areas. The company offers opportunities to young, disenfranchised individuals, cultivating the innate skills hidden within their own hands.
The drums of Louis K. Botchway and Bomukasa have been featured in Pool & Spa Living magazine. Bomukasa began as a sole proprietorship, started in 1980 by Louis Kojo Botchway. The name Bomukasa came into being in 1982, when Louis Kojo Botchway brought some artistic wood carvers and performing artists together to work and to train young people interested in the field. In the Akan language, Bomukasa literally means "together to discuss," its musical implication suggesting the discussion of sound. According to Botchway, the beginning was not easy. A talented artist, he completed a course in wood carving in 1979, and also studied graphic arts. Eventually he became interim president of Ghana's Wood Carvers Association, a recently formed group promoting the interests of its members. From humble beginnings with shoestring capital, Bomukasa Limited has grown into a successful producer of quality and creative African goods such as musical instruments, furniture, masks, and decorative panels. Bomukasa focuses on rural areas, working with the source of the raw materials. They offer opportunities to young, disenfranchised individuals, cultivating the innate skills hidden within their own hands. Currently Bomukasa comprises about 25 apprentices, 30 part-time employees, and a permanent staff of 20.
