Large Toere Drum
The toere is a traditional Tahitian drum made of a solid wood log. The toere stick is specifically designed and used to beat the toere drum. Each wood log is selected, prepared, and carved for the drummer. Blemishes and weathering patterns are the natural look of a toere and the toere stick as it is natureʻs beauty. All markings give each piece its unique characteristic.
