The Sun Moon Star Drum is a hand-crafted wooden and lamb skin drum made in Peru. The instrument features three differently sized drum heads on a cedar stick as well as two drum sticks that enable multiple children to play the instrument. The drum also comes with an instructional DVD with techniques, play along tracks, two player games, group play and an introduction to hand drumming.

The DVD prompted questions about music in other countries, how people know what kinds of sounds come from instruments not found in a symphony orchestra or a rockband, and what comes first - the sound or the instruments.
