SAKARA DRUM 
Sakara– a mention of this genre of music,
mind goes to late
Yussuf Ọlatunji , Ẹgba indigene,
Yoruba music
 with Islamic
YUSUF OLATUNJI 
tonation. 

Although, Sakara has undergone changes by present day singers , yet its focus as praise and
adulation song still
remains.

Instruments include Goje ,
(Yoruba violin ) and Sakara drum.
Yoruba music influenced by
Islam in style , tone, message , 
its purpose is to praise, and to 
eulogize . 

Goje, a two string fiddle 
is a major instrument for 
this music, and Sakara drum, one 
of the four major family drums in 
Yoruba land. It is popular 
among Ibadan, Ẹgba and Ijẹbu .
