The ksink ksink (sink-sink or KUH-sing KUH-sing), also known as se-se, kashink-kashink, sege sege, ksing-ksing, or segeh-segeh, are resonators placed around the head of the djembe. They come in many sizes and designs, can be made of tin, sheet metal, or old soup or coffee cans, and are said to represent a variety of things (shields worn by drummers in battle, covers to protest the master drummers magic, or reflectors to direct sunlight toward the drum head to keep it taught). When the djembe is played the ksink ksink create a sympathetic metallic rattling, adding body and accents to the music. They are sometimes called the djembe snare. They can be slipped through the crown loops, woven through the verticals, or secured with a rubber strip tied around the belly.
