Skor sang na

The skor sang na or sko chhneah is a Cambodia drum, similar in shape to the samphor but smaller, measuring 60 centimeters by 20 centimeters.[1] The instrument is small enough to carry.[1] Like the skor chaiyam which has a strap to allow the instrument to be carried in parades, the skor sang also has a strap.[1] However, rather than cheerful parades, it had a more solemn purpose, playing in funeral processions and ceremonies. Used to play "Khlang Chanack" funeral music.[1]

Equivalent to the Thailand Klong song na drum.
