These instruments, called "ConunDrums", are sets of clay tubes of different lengths with goat skin heads on the ends. They are played by tapping the heads with your fingertips or mallets. The length of each tube determines the pitch of the note that will sound. They are generally tuned in octaves and fifths with a few other odd notes thrown in.
