Kebero A kebero is a conical hand drum that is present in music from Eastern Africa, especially in countries like Eritirea, Ethiopia and Sudan. The drum is double-headed though the musician usually plays one side, hanging the drum on a strap over a shoulder. East African Orthodox Christians use large keberos in their rituals and celebrations.

A kebero is a double-headed, conical hand drum used in the traditional music of Eritrea, Sudan and Ethiopia. A piece of animal hide is stretched over each end of the instrument, thus forming a membranophone. A large version of the kebero is also used in Ethiopian and Eritrean Orthodox Christian liturgical music, while smaller versions are used in secular celebrations. The Kebero is primarily used in weddings, funerals and other ceremonies. The instrument is made from the hollowed out section of a tree trunk and then hard particles are inserted into it. The shell is then covered with two cow leather membranes, so that one can be tuned higher than the other. A kebero is also used in a worship called wereb. It is mostly done in Eritrea and Ethiopia.
