Shaman drum "Dhyangro" from Nepal.
65cm length ,35 cm diam. weight aprox 700 gr.
The dhyāngro may be either single- or double-headed. Double-headed drums are said to have a male side and a female side. The drumhead, which is made from animal skin, is struck with a curved beater fashioned from cane. The frame may also be equipped with jingles. Like the na drum of Tibet, but unlike most frame drums, the dhyāngro usually has a handle. The carving in the wooden handle of a dhyāngro may be quite intricate; owing to Buddhist influence, the handles of some drums are fashioned into a kīla.
A jhakri plays the dhyāngro during traditional shamanic ceremonies. The drum is occasionally used in Tibetan Buddhist celebrations, as in an orchestra performing Buddhist music
