The bendir is traditionally the only form of instrumental accompaniment in ahwash ensembles. It is a frame drum played with the fingers, and it usually has a snare stretched across its back (as shown in the photograph), which produces a buzzing sound when the instrument is played. It is also found across North Africa, ancient Egypt, and Mesopotamia.
