Oodles of Doodles XXVIII

It's been a busy week around here, but we wanted to squeeze in one more doodle. This native drum features from the flip side of Drums Of Bora Bora And Songs Of Tahiti (Criterion/Tiare Tahiti Records STT-1600, 1956). The artists are listed as The Exciting Drummers of Bora Bora, The Tropic Trio, The Voices Of The Atolls & Alain Mottet Et Ses Rhythms Tropicaux. The little drum on the back is a B&W version of a color sketch on the front. No credits are given for the doodle. This music appears to have been released on CD here (with audio snippets!). And there is a little more info for you about Tahitian tunes in general here.
(Don't forget, we previously brought you this set of drums from another LP.)
