Waterdrum - AV 507

Water drums are a category of membranophone characterized by the filling of the drum chamber with some amount of water to create a unique resonant sound. Water drums are used all over the world, including American Indian music, and are made of various materials, with a membrane stretched over a hard body such as a metal, clay, or wooden bowls. Here we have these wooden bowls brought to us by AfroTon, manufactured to exact specifications in selected production sites in the Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali and Ghana.
