Malaba drums were Bajoran musical instruments.

In the script for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fifth season episode "Things Past", Gul Dukat tells Jadzia Dax that six months prior to 2366, Bajorans burned malaba drums for heat, until he extended environmental controls into the Bajoran sector.

At least one unnamed Bajoran percussion instrument was seen in the series.
