In Kabuki, the O-daiko (large drum) and Shime-daiko (tight drum) represent a variety of drums used in performances. The O-daiko is 80-90cm in diameter, and struck as a signal of opening and closing during the day of a performance. Also, it is used in the Geza music to produce the sound of the rain or wave.
The Shime-daiko is about 26cm in diameter, and used in the Geza music or as an accompaniment to the dance. The video shows a rare scene in which the actor on stage plays the Shime-daiko on his own.
