The Goat Hide Drum is created by Maya Kakchiquel, Joaquin Meletz, our artisan friend that makes a living creating a variety of drums, rattles, and other musical instruments. Joaquin Meletz currently lives in Los Encuentros, Solola and works at his home work-shop and continues to provide a variety of high quality musical products to Maya Color.
