Gangan drummers

Drummers at a traditional Yoruba wedding ceremony. The drums are an intricate part of Yoruba culture, they are used to speak to the community. I did a photo documentary about the beauty and intricacies of traditional Yoruba wedding and the role of the drums for a cultural blog Mali to Memphis. Please check it out here
