Daf

Daf

Is a frame drum used as a musical instrument in popular and classical music. The term daf is used in Iran (Persia) / Kurdistan for a large drum that has a series of four interlinked rings in the frame.

Daf is mostly used in the Middle East, Iran, Armenia, Pakistan, Turkey, Tajikistan and Azerbaijan. Some dafs are equipped with rings or small cymbals, making them a form of tambourine.

The defi (sometimes called daire in other areas) is a fairly large frame drum with metal bangles. It is similar to a tambourine in construction, the defi is made with a metal screw system so that the head can be tightened and tuned. It is popular in many forms all over Greece, especially in the mainland klarino music. The defi is particularly popular in the Epirus region of northwestern Greece, where they are still handmade today. They have a beautiful low tone, and the bangles are low pitched as well. A virtuoso defi player can decorate the rhythm of the songs in many exciting ways.
