Hand Crafted Frame Drums. New Zealand.

Fallow deer skin 40cm

Presenting drums available from Southern Spirit Drums: the finest hand crafted frame drums made in New Zealand. Each drum is hand crafted into a Native American Shamanic and Celtic style ceremonial or healing frame drum,made in a traditional style. Drums are crafted specifically for each individual.The materials used are sourced locally.Throughout the crafting of your drum I acknowledge and honour the gifts that have been provided to me from nature and to the indigenous peoples, who throughout history have used the drum. My belief is that the drum is sacred healing instrument, resonating between our heart and directly connectingto the sacred frequency of Mother Earth.The drum is a wonderful healing tool and the knowledge I have is a gift I treasure. The name "Southern Spirit" came to fruition, following the devastating earthquakes of my "home town" the city of Christchurch,New Zealand. Years later this beautiful city continues its rise from the ashes, as the people of Christchurch find the courage, resilience and spirit and move on to rebuild their lives.Truely a "Southern Spirit" ~ Rustle Phillips

  • "May the spirit of the animal who gave their lives, be reborn again through your drum"
