body: clay; Dp.3.0cm
membrane: paper, Dm.4.4cm

A small kettle drum connected to stick by a string which extends from the center of the drumhead, a paper attached to a piece of unglazed, bowl-shaped pottery. The player holds the stick and twirls the drum in the air. The friction produced by the stick and thread when twirled is transmitted to the drumhead and a squeaky sound is produced. Hence, the onomatopoeic name, giligilipī;. Used as a children's toy, and varies according to area or person.
