dc.description155 x 107 mm. Showing a group of Mendi drummers with villagers standing behind them in the background: 'Mendis never tire of beating this drum - it is their one delight. I have known them up-country play through the entire night, and when gangs of men are sent out by the chief to work upon the roads they are invariably accompanied by the tom-tom beater who plays while they work, and so urges them to greater exertion' (Alldridge, T.J. (1901), 'The Sherbo and its hinterland', London: Macmillan and Company, pp.105). Photograph taken in the 1890s.en_GB
