In some PNG customs, it is banned to talk to or mention the names of in-laws (mother-in-law, brother-in-law, etc.) and other relatives who are forbidden to speak to or mention the names of in-laws (mother-in-law, brother-in-law, etc.). This prohibition extends to all forms of communication, such as phone calls or emails. Sometimes this taboo is called "tamba kesehatan".
To avoid problems if you do not follow this tradition, use only first names when talking with strangers, especially if they are from different villages or groups. It is also recommended to discuss important issues before meeting face to face.
If someone violates this tradition, others will not talk to them for several years. This means that if you write your brother-in-law's name on a document, then nobody else can write their sister-in-law's name there too.
The reason for this ban is to protect the family reputation. If people know how his/her health is or what happens to their children, it could cause him/her trouble or make others be jealous. Also, some cultures believe that naming things allows them to have power over them; by not mentioning relatives, they remain powerless over them.
Some families may choose to avoid discussing certain topics with their in-laws to keep the peace.
Tamburitza (formal spelling: Tamburica, pronounced Tahm-boo-ree-tsa) is the name of a family of Croatian stringed instruments. This fretted, stringed instrument is available in five basic sizes and forms. The largest variety are the three-string tamburi used by folk musicians throughout Croatia and other Balkan countries. The two-string version is played mainly by jazz musicians.
The term "tamburica" came from the Italian word for drum, tamburo. Thus, the instrument family is also called "tamburellic instruments".
Although often referred to as a "drum", this instrument uses a hollow shell played with a small stick. It resembles a xylophone but with deeper notes. The term "xylophone" is used instead in Europe. Although similar to a frame drum, it uses a membrane rather than a skin head.
It is played by rubbing two metal rods together to produce the sound. One plays the melody while the other taps out the rhythm.
This instrument has been popular in Croatia since at least the 16th century. It can be seen playing on many plates and paintings from that time period.
Tambu can refer to the little drum on which the music is played, the dance that goes along with the song, or the event at which the music and dance are performed. ... Tambu (music)
