Dance and Music is a very important part of the Ibo culture and tribal life,

Much like how artists in our culture use their profession to voice their opinions.

Music for the Ibo people is mainly folk music that uses string instruments, percussion, and some woodwinds and brass.
Just like how it is in American culture. Dance in the Ibo tribe was used to express a variety of things such as war, rites of passage, and even social and political views.

The Ibo use musical instruments to accompany dances, rituals, and spiritual and cultural events including births and funerals. Recently, it has been introduced to church choirs.
Some instruments in the Ibo Tribe are:
Ekwe (silt-drum) - used in coronations, announcements, summoning of citizens, and warning of emergencies.
Ogene (gong) - used in songs to transmit messages through lyric prose
Igba (cylinder-drum) - sends signals for
good or bad news
