Udu drums are a traditional ceramic instrument from Nigeria. They were first brought to the US in the 1970's by professor Abbas Ahuwan at an African Pottery workshop. Attending that workshop was Frank Giorgini, author of Handmade Tiles, who is now "considered the designer of the modern Udu drum" and anyone interested in purchasing Udu Drums should go to www.udu.com
