What an úbò sounds like.

I have decided to write the man in the video below and ask if he will give me online tutorials in playing the úbò. I have always loved its sound and thanks to my mother, I now own one. It’s the calabash-looking instrument.

But first I am going to treat the gourd and the wood with oil over a few weeks to make sure it does not crack further,  to help it last long and give it a good sound.

The ogene I will clean and oil as well. And after that, me and the Tot will spend an afternoon finding/whittling the perfect stick to play it with. Such fun!
