The pahu or pa'u is a traditional musical instrument, you can find in all Polynesia (Hawaiimarker, Tahitimarker, Cook Islandsmarker, Samoamarker, Tokelaumarker...). Carved from a single log and covered on the playing end with a stretched sharkskin, the pahu is played with the palms and fingers of the hand. It is considered a sacred instrument and was generally kept in a temple (heiau), and used to accompany a repertoire of sacred songs called hula pahu/ura p'au.
