Thammattema by Son of the Morning Light on

Detail of a thammatama or pokuru beraya, a pair of conjoined drums traditionally played with sticks. The drumheads are stretched animal skin, lashed tight with rawhide. Shot on assignment for Serendib, the inflight magazine of SriLankan Airlines, as part of my piece A Beat of the Ages, the story of traditional Sri Lankan drum-making, which ran in the December 2016 issue.
