Way Back Wednesday = The Dumbek – one of the drums most commonly used in middle eastern music.

The goblet drum (also chalice drum, darbuka, debuka, Kratom, doumbek, dumbec, or tablah, Arabic: دربوكة / ALA-LC: darbūkah) is a single head membranophone with a goblet shaped body used mostly in the Middle East, North Africa, and Eastern Europe.[1] The African djembe-wassolou is also a goblet membranophone.

The origin of the term darabukka probably lies in the Arabic word darba ('to strike'). The original use of goblet drums in Babylonia and Sumeria dates from as early as 1100 BCE. On Celebes one large form serves as a temple instrument, set on the floor when performed, which could be a survival of the ancient use of the drum .[4] There has also has been some debate that they actually originated in Europe and were brought to the Middle East by nomadic Celtic tribes.
