Drums of the Yoruba of Nigeria

This collection of Nigerian drum music demonstrates the rich textures of the three-legged sacred Igbin drums which one plays with hands and sticks, the Dundun or pressure drum which plays not only rhythm but melody, and the two-toned Bata drums which are unique to the Yoruba people.
