The Nyahbinghi Harps
Nyahbinghi drums are played only by capable
Rastafari brethrens during the hour of chanting. A bald
head or non Rastafarian is not permitted to play the drums.
Rings must be removed from the fingers of any such player
of drums, namely the Fundeh and Repeater so as to protect
the skins of the drums.
Players of instruments must be on one accord at all times
ensuring perfect harmony.
The three types of drums are: (1) The Bass, (2) The Fundeh,
(3) Repeater (Keteh)
Bass carries the two beat or heart beat 1,2 in accord with
the Fundeh, that says "Do Good" or 1,2. The Repeater repeats
the notes in accordance with the Bass and Fundeh.
