No Gathering would be complete without drumming.




  
El-Dento! Loud, proud, and ready for some non-stop drumming.

       
What good would a drum be without a strap. Mine is woven from natural hemp cord. The strap is woven with a series of Josephine knots; after a few years they tend to lose their figure. One end of the strap is intertwined around the rim, the other end is finished with a braided handle for easy carrying.



This is Cricket.
