3. Udu

A water jug that could pass as a musical instrument, the Udu is made from baked clay by women from the southeast of Nigeria. To turn this into a musical instrument an extra hole is added to the jug. It produces a bass sound that changes in pitch depending on how the hand above the jug is positioned.

4. Wara
