Listen Up! “U” is for Udu


The udu is an African instrument whose name – udu – means “vessel” in Igbo. It’s a water jug with an added hole! Usually it’s made of clay and played by hand (no mallets or sticks). Wait til you see this!



Fascinating! I’ve never heard of an udu nor heard it played.

Now that was unusual to say the least! Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Never heard of this and don’t think I’ve ever actually ‘heard’ it before.

Wow! I wouldn’t have believed such sound could come from a water jug – it was haunting.
