Description

The drum is the most universally distributed of all instruments. There is no ethnic group anywhere in the world that doesn't know the drum. This comprehensive volume relates the complete story--from primitive origins to the present day--of the drum in this hemisphere. Anthropologically sound and fascinating from any point of view, it discusses the heritage of the drum from its communal use as an instrument of warning to one of ritual and ceremony to its final evolution as a musical instrument.
