Sikiru Adepolju

I first saw Sikiru Adepolju, a native of Nigeria, play at a performance for the World Music Society at Symphony Space in New York City. The venue was small and intimate and joining Sikiru on stage were Giovanni Hidalgo, Nana Vasconcelos, Zakir Hussain and other Indian musical elite. Each musician contributed to the overall music and the place was rocking by the end of the meeting. It was incredible how much music could come from a small drum such as Sikiru played.

Sikiru agreed to come into LP to lend his knowledge of the talking drums to making LP's product an even better one. We learned a great deal from the meeting and our talking drums will reflect the information we gained from this great master. In the pursuit of authenticity in sound, LP products are constantly in a state of development.
