Authors: Abdulai Salifu (Tamale Polythenic, Tamale, Ghana) 
Book Description:
This book investigates the praise poetry genre of the Dagombas of northern Ghana. The art of drumming, performed by court figures known as drummers, is at the heart of Dagomba culture, and is central to this book. These questions, in addition to how we can channel panegyrics to positive uses, are the issues this book addresses directly. The contents presented in this book will help foster a cross-fertilization of ideas between the oral artists, their patrons, and academics; and also engender economic activity for the artists.
