Unmarried young women of the Limbu ethnic group living in the hills of the Eastern Region play the Taa. It accompanies the Dhaan Naach a dance performed on the threshing floor after the rice harvest. This dance is an opportunity for the gathering together of young men and women. Many couples dance together and life partners are commonly chosen during this dance. The Dhaan Naach continues each evening and even all night for several days. The Taa is also heard at various festivals of the Limbu ethnic group. It is made of brass, is 25cm in diameter and one pair of cymbals weighs one kilo. The Ke (Chyaabrung) is played at the same time as the Taa.

In Nepali artworks, Lord Buddha and all Buddhist monks or Lamas and especially Medicine Buddha carry a begging bowl; this traditional brass bowl was and is also used for healing as well as for collecting their daily food. The bowl was placed on the part of the body that was sick and was made to resonate by beating with a stick or by chanting healing mantra across it.
