The Udu, originated in Kenian traditional music, is usually made out of clay. Majid Drums has developed two wooden variations of the traditional Udu: the Ta-Udu and the Udu Wood.
The Udu Wood is a further development of the Ta-Udu that lead to a very new kind of this instrument. It features two additional playing surfaces made of calfskin and fish skin. Both skins are tuneable with a screw system. The fish skin gives you a clean attack while the calfskin offers a warm sound with its characteristic sustain.
In addition to the three striking surfaces, this drum is also equipped with two kaskaritas, which enhance the sound. With these kaskaritas, a latin sound can be produced and played very quickly. The Kaskaritas are also a patented idea of the master craftsman Majid and consist of different woods.
This percussion instrument is not only an eyecatcher, but also a very special instrument in terms of sound and variety. Depending on the type of playing, eight different sounds can be played simultaneously. Due to the tunability of this wooden Udu, the possibilities are limitless. No matter how often the drum is played, it never gets boring.
