Talking Drum

This West African drum has been used for centuries to convey messages over great distances. Skilled players can mimic human speech with this amazing instrument. It consists of a carved, hourglass-shaped body with two drumheads connected by leather cords. Players vary the pitch by holding the drum between the arm and body and squeezing and releasing pressure on the cords, while playing to change the tension on the drumheads. The curved beater is included. 

Made in Mali.
