Playing the Udu

drum

Udus are played by by hitting any part of the drum  

A good udu makes musicals sounds over it's entire body

The palm of the hand is the main striking tool for playing the Udu holes; the palm & finger tips are commonly used to play the body. 

The Udu is sometimes rubbed and scratched by players.  

Rubbing & straching produces more earthy tones, tecutures & variations.

Convenient & well designed microphone ports are in each udu

Small mics can be mounted for amplification and to capture the wondrous internal sounds. Each LP udu is amazing with a mic!!!

PLUS, the LP udu also lends itself perfectly to applying creative, electronic tonal effects

For such a simple instrument there is an enormous amount creative expression that can be found with an udu!

Each of the four drum sizes tones is evenly spaced & harmonious with each other

Playing Position

An udu can be played comfortably while sitting on the floor or in a chair. 

When sitting on the floor players typically sit the udu in a straw ring stand, which helps to secure & balance the drum while playing 

When sitting in a chair players hold the drum on their lap. 

Tip: Keep a rounded arm position playing
