Udu Drum (Nigeria)
The udu is an African drum originated by the Igbo and Hausa people
of Nigeria. In their language it means peace or vessel. Actually
being a water jug with one more hole, it was played by women for
ceremonial uses. Usually the udu is made of clay and stone.
The instrument is played by hand and produces a special and unique bass sound by quickly hitting the big hole. Furthermore the whole corpus can be played by fingers. Today it is widely used by percussionists in different music styles.
The instrument is an aerophone and an idiophone.
