Yoruba is a noble tribe with a beautiful and rich cultural heritage. One of the highly prestigious profession in Yoruba Land is Drum-making. Drum is made of animal skin, strained against wooden frames to produce sound. Most of the drums are percussive in nature, and produced a rhythmic pattern that is danceable. Drums are used in special occasions, festivals, carnivals, ceremonies. They even add special effects and style to Yoruba culture. Drums are differentiated by the sound they make, how they are made, history, and appearance.
