Traditional Udu drums are Nigerian musical instruments built by the women of the Igbo people. Originally udus were strictly used for women’s ceremonial purposes. The ceramic drums I have made are inspired by udus but don’t physically resemble the traditional instruments. They are all hand built and made to be amplified.
