Well since drums are considered to be sacred and they are used to contest. Look at dancers almost everything that they wear is sacred and they use that to contest to. so i dont think its any different. And i no most drums put something in between mother earth and the drum weather its a blanket or a stand (legs) but the reasons that i no of are because if the drum gets cold then "it goes to sleep" (but it depends what kind of skin) and also when you sing on the drum with your sticks then it moves so its just what different drums use.
And it depends on the Lead singer to what he wants around the drum and what rules he has set for the drums and the singers around the drum.
