The shamanic frame Bodhran drums are widely used by shamans in rituals. The drum is said to enable the shaman to enter a desired state of mind according to the beats per second played. Drumming on these is not restricted to regular rigid tempo playing but can speed up and down according to the musician's will. They are sometimes referred to as a 'bridge' or 'horse' to carry the shaman between consciousness. Frame drums are also perfect for the performance side of shamanism, where the physical gesture of playing is added into a dance.
Our medium painted tribe drum is octagonal in shape and is made in Indonesia. Each drum is carefully decorated with airbrushed stencil work. The beating of the drum is believed to allow the shaman to achieve an altered state of consciousness, sending him or her on a spiritual journey. The drum is often referred to as a bridge to the spiritual world, helping to establish connections to this unseen plane of existence. The drum comes in many style designs and sizes so take your pick.
They are made from mostly wood and animal hides, and each is handmade by skilled artisans working for an inspirational Fair Trade organisation. Due to the handmade nature of these products designs may slightly vary but loveliness comes as standard.
