„The cultures of south Zaire , east Angola and the north-west province of Zambia are mostly characterized by various influential royal dynasties. The best-known drums of the region come from the Kuba kingdom, situated between Kasai and Sankuru. Their skins are attached using a characteristc technique. A strip of leather is placed around the top of the body and nailed to it; the skin is then stitched to the leather strip."

Die Trommel wurde nur bei besonderen Anlässen, so z.B. bei Investiturzeremonien verwendet.
