Bowed Harp Drawing

Learn how to draw an "Adeudeu" with teacher Laura. You just need a white piece of paper and a pencil. An adeudeu is a bowed harp that comes from northeastern Uganda in Africa. It was used by the Teso people to accompany songs and story-telling, they would pluck the strings. You can hear how it sounds in the video. The oval at the bottom is actually a wooden sound box, it’s covered with animal skin, can you guess what kind? It’s from a reptile that slithers.

Video coming soon.
