Rebana Ubi

Name: rebana
Classification: membranophone
Origin: Malay

Many single headed drums in Malay folk music are called rebana or some variation of that name. These are found with cone-shape shells or as kettle or frame drums. Most instruments called rebana are frame drums with a shallow or a deep frame made of wood. If metal jingles are loosely inserted in the frame the rebana is known as rebana kercing or tar.
Very large cone shaped drums are also called rebana. Rebana ubi (photo above) is at least 70 cm in diameter and almost 1 meter in height. It is hung vertically or placed horizontally on the floor. They are usually found in ensembles which play interlocking patterns. Village rebana ubi orchestras often engage in contests with other villages providing entertainment after the rice harvest.
