African Musical Instrument in Display
My Trip to Imo State, Nigeria, and the Okorobo Cultural Dance
During my outing with some family members to Ikeduru in Imo State Nigeria, we were thoroughly entertained with some fabulous cultural dance steps from the Okorobo singers and dancers and believe me I stood speechless as I saw African musical instruments rollout wonderful rhythms as men and women of all age groups danced to the marvelous tunes produced by the Kaakaki, the wooden Gong (Ikoro or Oqua) and the Talking Drum (Igba as is called in Igbo language).
The Okorobo Cultural Dance
In dancing the Okorobo cultural dance, the musical instruments (Kaakaki, the wooden Gong (Ikoro or Oqua) and the Talking Drum) takes the lead and depending on what the rhythm says, a song is raised with almost silent chants followed by marvelous dance steps.
