The drum has been one of the instruments since ancient times
with a really essential role in the different traditions. Many natives refer to the sound of the drum as the beat of the earth and the sound was therefore considered assonant to the first beat of creation.
The drum is an instrument that is beyond the spiritual point of view to have different healing properties, it is scientifically proven that listening to the monotonous rhythm of the drums facilitates the production of brain waves that have a relaxing and beneficial effect.
The drum is never considered as an instrument, it has a soul that binds to the operator and lives of its own life, for that in its construction nothing is left to chance, everything must be rigorously calculated and followed according to the tradition of its own culture.
To create the drum, the tree was first chosen based on its characteristics and / or indicated by the spirits, from which the frame was made, and then passed to the skin of the chosen animal, obviously all following a specific procedure and leaving offers every time something was taken from the earth.
Inside the drum were attached pendants of anthropomorphic or proper forms of bones and animal components that served as an intermediary for the practitioner's helper spirits.
It is beaten with a stick or mallet of different shapes.
It has therefore always been essential to create the drum for oneself and especially using natural materials.
To be used, however, you need to animate it and activate it, everything happens according to specific rituals that vary according to tradition.
The drum is therefore considered in the different traditions and cultures as a sacred object also due to its use over the centuries as a means of contact with spirits, ritual and healing.
