Abstract

An African drum - strings maintain tension between the two drum heads on either side of the tubular body; tightening the tension cords raises the pitch of the drum heads. Damaged, with several tension cords being snapped and with one drumhead loosening from its base. The mallet is a carved piece of wood specifically made to strike the drum.
