Bendir Storytelling Drum
The bendir is a traditional instrument that is played throughout North Africa,
In Turkish, the word bendir means “a big hand frame drum”.
Bendir Storytelling Drum, as a frame drum, is the oldest and most common kind of drum,
What’s more, it is used until today during the special mystagogic
ceremonies of the Sufi, where the use of music, rhythm, and dance
are essential elements to reach particular states of consciousness.
The Bendir Storytelling Drum can be played to accompany ancient and modern instruments,
providing depth in the sound of a music band. It can also be used independently,
to provide a mystic sound background to special events and moments.
It can be played using one or two hands, and it is held vertically in front of the music player.
Traditional Moroccan Berber music can be categorised into collective and professional music.
This stunning Bendir Storytelling Drum is double-sided and around 1 inch thick.
When not in use can be hung on the wall or sat on the shelf for a stunning
decorative piece of art.
