The many peoples of Ghana create beautiful Kente cloth, brass castings, stamped Adinkra cloth used in funerals, stools carved of wood, and royal arts. They also use drums in ceremonies when the tonal patterns of the drumming match the tonal patterns of the spoken messages, allowing the drums to "speak". Each of these art forms are described in detail
