Hamza el Din Photographs - The Tar

The Tar Frame Drum

The Tar is one of many incarnations of the Frame Drum, which is perhaps the earliest type of drum and is found in many civilizations around the world. A Frame Drum is typified by the circular frame of the drum in which circumference of the head, usually made of animal skin, is bigger than the body of the frame. Frame drums can also be found in square shapes throughout many countries in the world.
