Ipu (Ee-p-u) is a percussion instrument made from gourds that is often used to provide a beat for hula dancing. I love the unique sound of this instrument and have used it as additive percussion in my tracks. Always looking for unique sounds from around the world.
I took some samples I recorded this awesome gourd and put it into a drum rack in Ableton Live. Watch the video below to learn more and the links to grab it for free / by donation.
