A pair of two fruits joined by a rope. These fruits are filled with seeds and are played with one or two hands. The rope is passed between the fingers and the rocking of the wrist makes the fruits collide.
The tama or tamani is an underarm drum. It is played with a small curved wooden stick while the fingers of the other hand rest on the drum skin. The tension on the skin can be varied by squeezing the instrument under one’s arm. Its extraordinary acoustic variability is what gives it the nickname “talking drum”.
