Deep in the bush of Burkina Faso, the drum is a sacred instrument surrounded by taboos and mystery. It takes on endless shapes and performs many functions: taking the place of the human voice, carrying news, conferring praise, and speaking to the world beyond… when it isn’t simply providing the rhythms for a dance.

Multilingual DVD (French, English, German).
