Daf with its different transcription and transliteration forms like Daff, dap, def, deff, defi, diaff, duff, refers to round single-headed frame drum connected with oriental cultures.

The drum had been widely used in Folk and entertainment music. In Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran and elsewhere it has historical and contemporary associations with Sufi rituals. In varying forms it is found in West Asia, the Caucasus, the Iranian plateau, Central Asia and south-eastern Europe. The drum is used in a wide variety of settings: folk music, art music, entertainment and dance music and Sufi religious rituals.

Kurdish type of frame drum is historically related to the pre-Islamic Iranian dap. Variant examples appear in Armenia and among the Uighurs of Central Asia (dap); in Azerbaijan (ghaval, gaval); in Turkey, Albania, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Macedonia (def); in Greece, particularly the north (defi).

Seddigh Mohammadi learnt making Daf for the first time from his uncle Mahmud, who learnt making Daf in the Kurdish village Hilwan near to Hashmiz and Takhte.
