AllMusic Review by

The tribal musicians of the Benue state are the focus of The Igede of Nigeria, an entertaining and enlightening sampler of exotic sounds created in accordance with the culture's sacred ceremonies and rites of passage. Collecting performances from ensembles from a number of different villages, the music shares common threads of beauty and power, performed on native instruments including talking drums, calbash trumpets and clay pots.
