In Ghana the beat of drums symbolize the heartbeat of a community. Such is the power of drumming and dancing, to touch the souls of those who hear its rhythm. ‘Asabone’ in Ghana means wild dancing. In an African community, beating the drum gives one another a welcoming sense of belonging. It is a time to connect with each other, and be part of that collective rhythm of life in which young and old, rich and poor, men and women, all join in with a common goal, which is to dance.
