    The smallest drums in the Bata family, also known as "omele meta", these three high-pitched drums both accompany and talk.They are played with two leather straps called Bilala (included) not usually with hands. Some bata drummers now play them with bendy plastic strips as well. These are professioanl quality drums; there is no difference in sound between the traditional leather rope or nylon rope versions.
