“Sonically, talking drums produce a sound that mimics the human voice,” explains Washington, D.C.-based wedding and portrait photographer Kirth Bobb. “These traditional musical instruments have been used as a means of entertainment and communication in Yoruba culture for centuries.”
In fact, the talking drum is widely considered to be one of the oldest instruments in West Africa and can be traced back to the Ghana Empire. They were used to preserve the oral tradition and history of their villages and families.
The couple’s traditional dress was another important part of the day that Bobb made sure to feature uniquely.
