Like the shoemaker in The Elves and the Shoemaker, the drum maker discovers that something magical has happened overnight.

Story

An aging drum maker is sad when he is no longer able to create his beautiful drums and join in with the Drum Festival announced by the King, one last time. But one morning he awakes to find he has been visited in the night by some magical characters who have made the most beautiful drums for him. He is so thankful that he and his wife leave some food out for the Aziza in return. They are able to go to the Festival full of joy.
