Another ‘’Loa’’ (Spirit Deity) from The Voodu Religion, ''Maitresse Delai'' hald a special place in folk worship. As we have seen, the simple Tambourine is a type of percussion (musical) hand held instrument, which when struck – produces a sharp ‘’beat’’ accompanied by a ‘’rattling’’ vibration (from attached pieces of thin copper). The instrument is very important in establishing a type of ‘’rhythm beat trance’’, when Hougans (Priests) are attempting to summon a specific Loa. ‘’Delai’’ is said to be The Loa who ‘’blesses’’ the Tambourines, making them be ‘’heard’’ by The Spirits. Specially trained Players, called ‘’Hountors’’ take great care and skill in hand crating the instruments (which are NOT viewed as traditional Tambourines).
