This is a folding box drum (a cross-shaped 2-d array of 6
rectangular pieces of wood that fold up either into a flattened
space-saving stack with straps that can be worn against the back
under a regular backpack, or assembled into a resonant box that
can be played like a drum. Box drums are
also known as Cojons.
The hard part would be a securing system that allows the separate
panels to fit together tightly
to form a resonant cavity. Maybe there could be cone shaped
pegs to tighten things up.

||I don`t understand this idea, but that`s ok, because I don`t care.
||There I retooled it, does that make more sense?
||Peripherally, Cojon is pretty close to cojones which means
testicles which is funny because the way you play a Cojon
is by sitting on it so that it would be like you are playing
your testicles, in a similar way to the way a Bumgos player
who's partner was wearing bongos on their bum might play
their partner's bum. I don't know, music, adolescent
humor, percussion, vague South American references, it's
all in there somewhere.
||Parenthetically, I once, in search of eggs for breakfast in
Spain, popped my head quickly into a small shop and asked
the proprietor, "tienes huevos," which I found out quickly
also means, "Do you have the testicles to fight me?" I think
I've already told that story on this website.
||I'm giving a folding bun. [+] I understand (uh-hum)
the idea somewhat by looking at your link. In
Jamaica they make these boxes with strips of tuned
metals across the hole and call it a *rumba box*. It's
very cool and simple. [see my link] They just carry
them around and stop to play when they feel like it.
