Yangere Slot Drum (N° 16727)

This zoomorphic monoxyle wood idiophone was equipped with a long rectangular slit that acts as a resonant opening. Featuring a handle featuring the elegant stylized head of a bovid, it is also streaked with decorative parallel grooves. A flank is eroded. Smooth, satiny, warm-reflected patina.
The Yangere are based in the north of the Central African Republic and in Chad, some groups live in Sudan and the Cameroonian hinterland. The slot drum is not only a musical instrument animating dance but also a vector of speech, since it serves to communicate messages: invitations to gatherings, various announcements, etc. In Central Africa, the ritualist, the only one authorized to use the instrument, also seeks to attract the attention of the spirits through the sound produced by the chopsticks struck on the slot.
