Ugandan embuutu

Description:

The embuutu is a Ugandan drum made from hide and hardwood, with modern iterations being formed of pinewood. The percussion instrument is part of the Ngoma family of drums that are used by certain Bantu populations in Africa, however, it is generally associated with the Baganda of Uganda. The embuutu is played with the hands, which differentiates it from the larger namunjoloba, which is played with drumsticks.
