The Udu (say oodoo) was originally developed by women in Nigeria. Centuries later, the LP Claytone Udu Drum was further refined by master ceramicist Frank Giorgini. Each one offers individual tonal values. They can be played by hitting any part of the drum with the palm of the hand or the fingertips and palming the hole strongly resembles the low Indian tabla which is instantly recognisable. The textured surfaces provide additional tonal variations by creating rubbing sounds.
