This medium sized talking drum is from the Yoruba people who are an ethnic group in West Africa found predominantly in Nigeria
Talking drums are drums whose pitch can be regulated to the extent that it is said to ‘talk’
This unusual percussion instrument is played while tucked under one arm. A combination of finger tapping and strikes with the curved stick create tones which are regulated by the amount of tension put on the ropes when squeezed between the arm and the body
Dimensions – 6″ x 29cm
