Why is it called Drum Shaman or Chaman?

The questions concerning the drums are millions. Why is it called shaman drum? What is the difference between a Djembe and an Ashiko? What music can be played with African drums?
Shaman drum refers to its name as the shamanic drum because of its uses in shamanic work, let's know much more ...


We have talked about most of our drums but we have never paid much attention to the shaman drum and today is his day.

A LITTLE HISTORY

In shamanism, the drum is used for two basic purposes: changing your state of consciousness or moving energy. When the shaman wants to travel, he needs to change to a different state in order to travel. The drum helps to do that. The shaman needs to make a similar change if he wants to be able to see the client with spiritual eyes. The shaman also uses the drum to call the spirits. When you call the spirits, you are literally calling the help / healing spirits to enter the room, but with the spirits they are given their energy. The shaman can also send insane energy using the drum. In this way, the shaman can use the drum to direct the energy.

HIS SOUND


Many of the drums used in shamanic work have a lower sound compared to bass. But shamanism is about results, so it is worth trying different drums to see if one seems to work better than another. In fact, some people use bells, or Tibetan bowls, or toning sounds to travel.
Shamanic drums also often have a resonant sound. Unlike a drum that makes a quick touch, there is usually an echo sound that continues after each time.

Different drum sticks or beater construction can make different sounds. You may find that you like a particular drum better if you buy a softer or firmer whisk. The drums that are hit with your hand are fine, but some are difficult to handle or require more support (the floor or your lap, for example).
Note: The drum beater is what makes the sound, not your arm. Simply move the whisk from side to side. You want a firm blow of the whisk, but not a hard one. The sound is made by the movement of the drum head. If you hit the drum hard, you don't let it make music and you're going to get tired quickly. If you are moving from the wrist instead of moving your entire forearm, you will also get tired that way.

We are going to leave this Blog here and we will have a new blog about the material it is made of and the origin of it.
