The bendir is a frame drum that has been popular in Northern African countries like Morocco and Algeria for hundreds if not thousands of years. A bendir player usually holds the drum with the left hand, keeping it vertical and stable by keeping the thumb in a hole in the frame, and strikes it with the right hand, buzzing the snares that are stretched inside. It is mainly a secular instrument but may make an appearance during Sufi rituals.
