In the days of Rwanda’s kings, drums announced the presence of the monarch—known as the Mwami—and were also a way that the king communicated with his people. The Royal Drummers held a position of high status in the court. Today, Rwandan drum ensembles perform complex and exuberant orchestrations that hearken back to the days of the king’s court.
