Drums of The Native American Indians

A message from The Drums...

native american indian made, drums raw hide drumsAll life is rhythmic. We see it in the coming and going of day and night. the ebb and flow of tides. The swaying of trees in the wind. We hear it in the patter of rain. The repetition of footsteps. The beating of the human heart. We respond to rhythm when we sense it-and seek it out when it is not present for it is invariably pleasant. Little wonder that throughout the history of mankind, people from all over the world have prized drums-the instruments of rhythm.
Perhaps no other people have attached a greater significance to the spirit of the drum than the Indian tribes of North America. The drum has played an inherent role in the lives of Native Americans for centuries. prior to battle, the beat of the drum aroused a sense of strength and solidarity. in gatherings of celebration, it created a sense of social and spiritual harmony. The Indian Nations continue to express their deep spiritual awareness through ceremonial dances accompanied by the resonant pulsation of the drum.

Over the years, Our Drums have gained international recognition. We are proud sharing in the Spirit of the Drum with the world. We at Southwest Country Carry a very large selection of Drums. Every drum is handmade from natural materials and renewable resources over a year-long process. Drum heads are made from cow, goat, sheep, deer, buffalo or elk raw hides that have been thoroughly cleaned and scraped to maintain the highest level of sound, appearance and durability. After soaking the rawhide to make it pliable, then the hide is hand-scalloped, stretched and secured with rawhide lacing to the frame.
