Proverbe Camerounais sur l’Adaptation / Proverb on Adapting to Various Circumstances


Tam-tam / Drum

Quand on change le tam-tam de place, il a un autre ton (Proverbe Kossi – Cameroun). – Hurler avec les loups; s’adapter aux diverses circonstances de la vie.

When you change the position of the drum, it has another tone (Kossi proverb – Cameroon). – Howling with wolves; Adapt to various circumstances of life.


  1. It’s a meaningful extension of that “beat to a different drummer” phrase and very practical. That and it’s true on a literal level. I’ve certainly learned that with my fair trade hand drums. Haha!
