DESCRIPTION

The 13" sakara (sah-KAR-ah) drum is the largest we import, and produces the lowest sound in the ensemble with a very full bass note. While most of our sakara drums have wood frames, the large 13" are made with the traditional clay frame. The sakara originally comes from Nigeria and is played using traditional frame hand drum technique. By holding the drum in one hand and simultaneously muting and releasing the skin with the same hand, and striking the head with the other hand in various locations, the drummer is able to obtain many different sounds. Our sakara are custom built for us using wood frames and wood tuning spears, which one can push further into the slot for a higher pitch. Lower tuning is obtained by lightly rubbing a damp hand over the skin. Our high quality sakara frame drum is covered by our satisfaction guarantee, and features:

  • Hand crafted in Africa using traditional methods, imported direct
  • Solid wood frame wrapped with quality West African goat skin
  • Many tuning spears allow for custom pitch and sound
  • Average 13 inches diameter playing surface
  • Wood playing stick included
  • Made by cultural artisans supported in their livelihood by non-profit Africa Heartwood Project.
