Ewe drum of Ghana for sale - Sogo

The role of the sogo, considered the “big brother” of the family of Ewe drums of Ghana is essentially to back up and support the other musicians.

It sometimes replaces the atsimevu as master drum, or the kidi to answer them

The Ewe, a tribe which lives primarily in Ghana and Togo, are famous throughout West Africa for their musical ensembles. They consist of drums playing complex and diversified rhythms similar to jazz and Afro-Caribbean music. One of the most well-known of these is the Agbadza.

Like many of the African drums, those of the Ewe imitate the rhythms and sounds of their native language.
