Greetings Darbuka Gurus,

I hope you can help me identify the origin of this darbuka (please see attachment).  I'm thinking Lebanon.  The drum is obviously quite old, and is engraved with what appears to be Arabic.  Anything you can offer will be appreciated - age, maker, materials, etc.

I'm also curious about the purpose of the wooden strip wrapped around the top within a groove.

Thank you in advance.
