It is a double-headed skin drum, traditionally built with Parota root wood. Rims are made of aisinchete schrub and are tightened as in military drums. It is performed with a pair of wood sticks, one of these with a skin covered head to soften the sound.
Tamborita accompanies guitars and violins in sones and gustos of tierracalenteña music.
