The Pahu is a drum that can be heard and is usually played during a Hawaiian Hula dance. A log is used to create this drum. It is carved and etched to make the drum. Then the skin of a shark is stretched tightly over the open log. The drummers of the Pahu will use both of their fingers to play the drum as well as their palms of their hands to play it.

The word “pahu” means drum. The Pahu was played in ancient history for the hula dances as well as during the modern times. There are a number of different instruments that could be played during the Hula dance, but the most prominent is the Pahu drum.
