AFRICAN LUNGA DRUM of GHANA
The lunga drum is melodic as well as rhythmic. Drummers control a lunga's pitches by squeezing and releasing the cords that run between its two drumheads. Changes in pressure on the cords affect the tension on the drumheads and thus the pitch made by a drum stroke. Each lunga drum has its own exact pitches, depending on the dimensions of its wooden body and the thickness of its two goatskin heads. For the sound recordings on this website, Alhaji played drums in three general pitch categories: large-size with low pitches, medium-size with medium pitches, and small-size with high pitches. Whatever the size of a lunga's voice, Alhaji consistently intones three pitches: low-tone, mid-tone, and high-tone. Alhaji makes melodies with three diatonic intervals: low-tone to mid-tone is a minor third, mid-tone to high-tone is a major second, and low-tone to high-tone is a perfect fourth. These intervals are easy to sing but difficult to play on an actual lunga drum. This technical challenge is one reason why chanting the vocables is such a wonderful way to learn this music.
