These ancient drums sit silently waiting on top of the centuries old Chinese Drum Tower proudly displaying their traditional markings of good will and blessings. Their vibrant red supports lined up precisely under the wavy tiled roof so common in this land of ancient culture and spiritual beliefs. Traditionally used to mark the passing times of day where the city would close and open its gates they proudly stand still for their thousands of continual visitors.
Imagine the deep vibrating beat they produce, a ringing resonance that would fill the city walls in rhythmic bass thrumming. A booming sound that would hit the chest of those within its reach and deafen the ears of those that play them no doubt. So many ghosts linger here, a myriad of passing generations who have witnessed this epic display.
