This family of atoke (ah-TOE-kay) bells forms part of Anlo-Ewe percussion ensemble music in Ghana, Togo, and Benin. Also known as the apitua (ah-PEE-too-ah), banana , and toke bell, the atoke bell is shaped like a canoe, and is traditionally played by resting in an open palm and striking the edges with a metal beater. The atoke also doubles as an effective dunun bell, by slipping it through the vertical ropes on a horizontally positioned dunun.

These atoke bells feature:

  • Sizes included: 12" large, 9" medium, 7" small
  • Hand forged from recycled iron by expert blacksmiths in Togo
  • Clear, crisp tones that are easily heard when the ensemble is playing
  • Metal striker included with each bell
  • Due to handcrafted nature of this instrument, each bell has unique pitch and sound quality
