Poem about Eka Ibim

Eka Ibim

Eka Ibim!
The mother of all drums
Calved from the hardest wood
And covered by the thickest animal skin.

Eka Ibim!
Companion of the town-crier
Your re-echoed beats
Announces the King’s message.

Eka Ibim!
Cultural dancers, traditional masquerades…
All need your rhythmic praises
To detect their choreographic steps.

Eka Ibim!
Modernization has stolen your ancestral root
That your fame has gone beyond our shores
Now your beats are heard in every song that is sang
That all might come to embrace you as the giver of beats.

Eka Ibim, Oh Eka Ibim…
Forever carry yourself with pride
And let every piece of your heartbeat
At all times define the line of a song
That we shall always celebrate you as the mother of all beats.
