The humble hand drum is a standalone instrument. It just needs your creativity and skill to create something beautiful.
These instruments produce a variety of tones which you can take full advantage of with a bit of practice. Their resonating wooden chambers provide a deep, bassy thud when the head is hit, while the tautness of the skin (usually made with rawhide) provides the iconic slapping and popping sounds the instrument is known for.
