Code: DAF-8
(inc. VAT)

The Daf is not only played in Sufi music, but also at many festivals and ritual celebrations, where it is often found in large ensembles. Its percussive sound ranges from tender and subtle to nuanced and voluminous. The frame drum achieves this by the countless small metal rings, which are fastened to the inside of the frame and hit against the skin when playing. Their spiritual background can also be recognised by the fact that all elements, of this large and light drum, are attributed with a deeper meaning. The skin symbolises the animal kingdom, the frame the plants and the rings the world of minerals
