Touareg Drum (N° 25650)

Drum with handles whose resonance box stretched with skin is formed of a gourd. The lacing is made of leather and wicker strips. Old piece, marks of use. Scattered throughout the Saharan region of Libya, Mali, Algeria and Niger, the Tuareg (sing.: Targui), or "Veiled Men", come from Berber pastors fleeing the Arabs in Libya in the 7th century. The Targui blacksmith also carves wood, this being a rare material, the carved objects which are often repaired to prolong their use are part of the dowry.
