Hand Drums in the Orthodox Church?
« on: February 16, 2011, 10:07:56 PM »
Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

We have discussed in several places the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church's use of the hand drum in worship, prayer, and hymn.  I am wondering though, do any other Orthodox cultures also use the hand drum in the Church?

stay blessed,

I have read that the Orthodox in Kenya and Uganda use drums, but I don't know what kind.
