This is a very Unique and One of a Kind Bamboo Beaded Drum from the Kambot Village, Papua new Guinea. A percussion Idiophone is struck with a smaller implement, usually a stick. The hollowed bamboo like a slit-drum are among instruments belonging to this group. These are instruments made of sonorous materials set in vibration directly by the player's action. This decorated drum can be played like a split gong drum with stick. Chordophones, are instruments with stretched strings set in vibration by plucking or striking. Strings may be added to the material from which the instrument has been constructed or may actually form part of it. A type found among groups living in the Sepik River area consists of a strand from the mid rib of a sago frond, elevated and tightened at each end by wedges or by a central support. Two notes of different pitch may be sounded, one on each side of the bridge. This drum has etched clan designs, wonderful beading around the top and bottom and fiber strings around the drum, as swell as a slit to use a stick for an additional sound. This would be a wonderful addition to your collection or home.
