It was used as a music instrument and in great part of important festivals and ceremonies: sacrificial offering to the God, praying for rain, gauds and burial rites. Brass drum was a symbol of power, wealth and influence. The sound of brass drum was order urging the army onward when the country was invaded by enemies, burial belonging of the dead. For this reason, brass drum has social and religious meaning.
