Music

Bernard began importing musical instruments to the United States, Europe and around the globe to help his students gain access to high quality musical instruments so they can maintain their training. All instruments are produced at the Dagara Music Center by the craftsmen who produce instruments for the National Theatre of Ghana and the National University of Ghana at Legon.

Gyil – Dagara Xylophone

xylophone

One of the world’s most complex and beautiful musical instruments. The keys are hand carved from a fire-dried hardwood and resonators made from dried gourds, with soundholes covered with vibrating spider webs. The xylophone is held together with antelope leather. Custom built by the same master craftsman who builds Bernard’s xylophones. All prices include shipping and handling.

Bernard imports Kpanlogo drums, Ewe drums, Dagomba talking drums and Akan drums like the one featured in this photo, as well as Ghanaian Djembe drums. All drums are hand-crafted in villages throughout Ghana. Drums are finished with goat and antelope skins and rope or wire tuning systems.
