Large hide covered frame drum known locally as a Kading. Drum has a jute handle used for carrying the instrument. The drum body is made of wood and provides the resonance while the hide covers the body of the instrument. Glue is used to attach the hide to the drum body.
The kading frame drum keeps the beat of the music in the tradtional kading-pane Sora dance ensemble. Before the drum is played, the head is warmed in front of a straw fire to make it taut. The thinner of the two playing sticks is held in the left hand and plays a drum roll, whilst the thicker stick is held in the right hand and plays a single beat. Traditionally the kading-pane ensemble was reserved for celebrations honouring the dead, but it now also accompanies dance songs and music at weddings and government-sponsored festivals of the Sora community.
