Besides his religious activities he makes his living as a tenant to the landlord of Yekshawa, a village near Bukan in the possession of a branch of the famous Baba Miri Mukri family. The dervish accompanies both his epic and his religious songs with the defe.In those parts of the song in which he sings in a low voice he keeps the drum vertically in front of him, singing into it and using it simultaneously as a resonator, mirliton and percussion instrument. In purely instrumental interludes or in parts o f the song which are performed loudly the drum is held diagonally, away fr om the body. It is held with both thumbs, beaten vigorously with the fingers of both hands, and occasionally struck against the ball of the left thumb.The rattle of the attached chains is most prominent in the latter circumstances.
