Percussion implements have always been a part of Hawaiian culture. Instruments were fashioned from things that the Hawaiians had at there disposal. Gourds were made into ipus, coconut tree trunks were made into pahus, and the skin from sharks were made into drum skins. Bamboo was made into puili. Ka'eke'eke were made from the longest and straightest bamboo.
