Gendang: Traditional Malay Drums
Description The gendang is a traditional drum from Sarawak, Malaysia. This video demonstrates the challenges stemming from the discrepancy between the reality of a decreasing number of gendang-makers and the necessity of maintaining the tradition through the lives of two gendang-makers, Umar Tomik and his younger brother Safuan Tomik. It also encompasses the methods of producing gendang, the types of wood used, the difference between gendang and drums from other regions of Malaysia, the method of playing the drum, types of drum performances, and stories behind the design of the drum.
