Talking Drums

The talking drum is a hourglass-shaped drum from West Africa. It's 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.
