EDM #17 - Musical Instrument

EDM #17 - Musical Instrument
Originally uploaded by SideShowMom.
My new Toca doumbec (also called a darbouka)! I did it in watercolors and in with some prismacolor pencil over it. I wasn't crazy about the intensity of the colors. In my hedgehog. It's a middle eastern drum used for the main rhythms and embelishments in Middle Eastern music. There's a photo of it in my flickr Bellydance set also. I found it at Explorers Percussion on Wornall Friday and they had aluminum ones from Egypt also to save for. It's got a light-weight synthetic body covered with a Balinese batik print fabric and sealed finish and a goat-skin glued head. I figure it'll be good for me to practice rhythms on and for toting to the Renaissance Festival, parades, etc.

Wow, you did a wonderful job on this! So colorful and symetrical--I always have problems with that.
