Tribal Drum or Khuang

Tribal Drum or Khuang

This is our traditional tribal drum, called Khuang in our dialect. It is made of tree stump and hide. We tied the drum stick to the drum to avoid misplacement. It is quintessential for every household to have a drum as we used to have family fellowship where we normally sing songs together.

I got mine when I went to my hometown some years back, as my father insist that I get one. So whenever we have a family devotional time I would play the drum. If I play the guitar then my daughter or wife would play the drum.

Although we live in the metropolitan, we remember our roots and this is one way we stay connected to our tradition.
