“The Aztec Drum or teponaztle is a rectangular shaped drum played by the Aztec and Mayan people of Old Mexico before the European conquest. Their ancient playing style, which combines sounds from two or more tongues cut into the drum body, was lost in the 16th century.Today, the
original playing techniques are utilized by traditional Mexican dance groups. A teponaztle is typically a flat-set percussion instrument played by hitting one of the two thick wooden panels in the center, where it would resonate into the instrument's hollow.
