Product Description & Reviews

The Paragon Heartwood Mali Tama is a an authentic, professional grade talking drum that is capable of producing a wide range of pitch and great clarity of sound. Hand made in the traditional way by experienced cultural artisans in Mali, this versatile instrument is made from seasoned Dugara (Duki) wood, and a premium close-shaved goat skin.

The tama is played by positioning it between the upper arm and the upper ribs, and playing one head with the curved stick while simultaneously squeezing the ropes in and out with the upper arm, and tapping and muting the head with the fingers of the other hand. Curved playing stick included.
