There are very few or no bronze drum at all found in Guangdong and Fujian of China even though 2500 years ago, Guangdong and Fujian were still uninvaded by the Han. Most bronze drums are found in Southwest China - Yunnan, Guangxi, Guizhou...not Southeast in China.
The association of bronze drums to all Yue people are therefore problematic because many Yue tribes lived in Fujian, Guangdong - the coastal area of China and bronze drums have not been found here.
Only some Yue groups produced bronze drums. There were the Luoyue of Northern Vietnam and the Dianyue of Yunnan. Nanyue and Minyue did not produce bronze drums.

I know how Cantonese look, 20% of them look North Chinese, while 10% of them could pass as a Viet, but most of them are a mix between North China and the native people in South China.
Even Germans from South Germany are not pure Germanic, they are a mix of Germanic and Celtic, while those from East Germany might even have a lot of Slavic blood.
Then according to our Viet friends here, the South and East of Germany should declare the independence. This makes no sense at all.
