Description: From the soil of Africa, trampled by shackled captives and bloodied by the whips of slavers, to the sweating forests and wave-lashed beaches of the Caribbean, the voices of the sacred drum accompany the master drummer, Entahso, in his exile. The songs of the drum are a nation's history, beaten out by frail and ageing hands, but still possessing a thundering and terrible authority. Before he dies, Entahso teaches his songs and skills to Mabouya, but when Mabouya himself is ready for death who is there to inherit the drum? Who is there - among a younger generation of dilletantes and self-servers - to keep alive the old stories and to tell the stories still unborn? Weaving through continents and centuries, Voices from a Drum tells of people whose spirit was not colonized, whose inner life was not fettered nor haltered, and whose ghosts still run free among the trees and the high, smoking rocks, breathing their resistance into the living.
