Mapping the Diaspora

Store

Wood Carvings

African artists impart value to a carved object through abstract representation. Instead of creating an idea that’s realistic or true to life, their work has a more transcendent quality. Artists seldom represent actual people, real animals, or the realistic form of invisible spirits. Instead, they aim to represent ideas about reality, spirituality or humanity, and present these ideas in animal or human form.

African Musical Instructments

We have a variety of musical instruments from across the region of West Africa. The African culture is expressed through these instruments such as the Djembe, Kpalogo, Talking Drum, Kalimba, Kora, Balafon, and a variety of other instructments. You will enjoy the rhythms with every beat or shake.

A beautiful little piece of the African diaspora right in Savannah. Loved the authentic pieces of art and crafts from the Continent. But even more than that, we loved the energy and care from Mr. Richard, one of the owners. We will be visiting this shop EVERY time we are in Savannah!
