Pellet Drum - Panama

Purchased in Panama, 1957

From Graciela's Notes

This small sturdy wooden barrel-shaped rattle drum that has glass beads attached to the short cords. Just twirl the handle quickly to make the sound.   I bought this little drum while traveling in Panama in June 1957 on my home for the summer from Tia Juana, Venezuela where I was working for Creole Petroleum.
