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.
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
