Daf also known
as Dâyere and Riq is a Middle Eastern (mainly Iranian) frame
drum musical instrument, used in popular and classical music in Iran and Pakistan.
It is also used in Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan,
many regions of Georgia, as well as in parts of India and Russian polar
regions. It is also popular among Balkans, Bukharan Jews, Caucasians, Kurds,
It traditionally has a round wooden frame (although in the modern
era it may also be made of metal), jingles, and a thin, translucent
head made of fish or goat skin (or, more recently, a synthetic
material). The sound is produced by hitting the membrane with either
hand – the left hand, which also holds the Daf, strikes the edges,
and the right hand strikes the center. The right-hand fingers are
fastened about their neighbours and suddenly released (like the
action of finger-snapping) to produce loud, rapid, sharp sounds.
