Description:Developed by Frank Giorgini and percussionist Jamey Haddad. The Udongo udu can be played on the two holes of the drum or on the shell of the drum. The design of the Udongo udo is a little like a bongo in that it's two main playing sections sit side by side. Just as there are two heads, which sit side by side on a bongo drum, there are two holes, which sit side by side on the udongo udu drum. When playing on the holes, you provide the rhythm and the udongo will provide the mellow tones.
In addition to playing the holes, slapping the clay shell will give a strong percussive effect. It will produce an obvious slap sound as well as higher pitched, pinging sounds.
A large range textures can be produce between the two chambers and slapping, tapping, knocking or scratching on the drum. The textures range from mellow sounds to dry sounds to bright sounds to sharp sounds to wet sounds.
Each chamber of the udongo produces its own unique sounds & textures; bouncing the palm upon the holes creates beautiful, soothing sounds; easy to play and produce various tonesThe word "Udu" comes from the Nigerian Ibo language and means "pottery". The simple, but solid clay construction is based upon centuries-old African traditions. Udus reveal the close relationship between pottery & musical instruments.
