Cosmic Tombak


A tombak (also known as tonbak, donbak, dombak and zarb) is a goblet drum from Iran. It is considered the principal percussion instrument of Persian music. A tombak player holds the drum diagonally across his lap with the wider section usually over his right side and plays it with the fingers and the palm of the hands.
