Udu magic

Meet "UDU" in action -- an African drum originated by the Igbo and Hausa people of Nigeria.In Igbo language it means "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.

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.
