Talking drums are hourglass shaped drums with a drum on each end. They are also known as "waisted drums" since the hourglass shape appears to give the drum a "waist". The drums are made from animal hide and have leather cords that run along the body attaching to the animal hide at the other end. The size of talking drums varies greatly from the smallest called a "gan gan" to the largest drum - "dun dun. Our handmade talking drums have a playable head on each end of the drum.

The talking drum is held under the left arm and squeezed as the drum is hit with a bent stick. The act of squeezing the drum changes the pitch and gives off various notes.
