Princess Yennengaa(Mother of Mossi)
 Takai is one of the oldest drum rhythms of the Dagombas, and the story tells of how they came to be so close to the Mossi tribe..Takai is in the form of a suite or medley. Each section has its own name, musical phrases,and dance movements. Takai dancers, arranged in a large circle, hold rods in their right hands that they strike together. Wearing smocks that flare out when they wheel around, dancers strike rods to their front and rear on the cadence moment of the drum rhythm. The clacking sound of the dancers' rods is part of the overall percussive music of Takai. The joy of performance comes from the way the drummers and dancers meet at each cadence point in the recycling musical theme.cont.reading
