Their faces are hot from the flames, their backs cold because of the night wind.When the Drums begin to talk, everyone falls silent. Who knows what magical tales they will tell?The Villagers wonder if the tales told by the Talking Drums are true.

They wonder how many children were born to Sitango and Mutesi, and whether the drums every betrayed Bokosha again. Simple things.Close your eyes now, and listen. Can you hear what the Talking Drums are saying?...

    This is a bunch of short stories. They remind me of Grimm's or Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tales--only not as gruesome. Set in Africa somewhere. Has everything magic, mystery, romance, messages.
