Mosquito Drum

The Mosquito drum , even though it is called a " DRUM " , It"s moor of a harp type stringed instrument , ( David"s harp  ) . It"s used in the Kicking & Knocking - Flying " Ring Shout " , Praise house , seeking etc . and where ever some good improve spirit was needed .
 
It reminds one of the Berimbau sound in N' Gullah danse /fight . I remember moor or less ; hip wrestling . But due to slavery we Gullah/Gee "CHI " didin"t have time to write things down .
 
Because my Aunt Cleo and my Father " TUDE " were the fighters , I can remember them giving me stratigies for combat .
 
Definitly the CoCo Butt , Jack U  up . Legg wraps ( Figue 4 ) chokes etc.  This " Mosquito Drum is the missing link .
