Talking Drum


The talking drum is an hourglass-shaped drum from West Africa, whose pitch can be regulated to mimic the tone and prosody of human speech.
Its body is covered by two skins which are connected by leather strings, which allow the player to tweak its pitch by pressing the drum between his arm and body.
A skilled player is able to play whole melodies and phrases.
Made in Ghana. 20″ x 8.5″ head.
