The talking drum is an hour-glass shaped, with two heads made from goat skin, tuned by straps of leather that connect the heads with each other. The player puts the drum under one shoulder and plays the drum with a stick. The pitch is raised or lowered by squeezing or releasing the drum’s strings with the upper arm. As with language you can bend the pitch moving any particular sound up and down. Each tribe or language group, will use the drum to imitate the tonality of their own language.
