Chad Music

Chad music reflects the different regions and ethnicity of its peoples with instruments including the 'hu hu', kakaki, maracus and kinde however probably the most frequently used musical instruments are the single-reeded flute associated with the Falani and the lutes and fiddles of the Tibesti region.

Other string instruments such as the 'keleli' are used to speak for male performers as it is not considered appropriate in some parts of Chad for men to be singing in front of adult women. This instrument is mostly used around the Tibetsi mountains where Teda music is played. Regardless of the instruments used, most if not all Chad music is set against a background of Tam Tam drumming.

You can hear Chad music played spontaneously in churches, millet bars and at village dance nights. The national Anthem of Chad was written in 1960 following independence from France and is called "La Tchadienne";  an English translation is as follows:

"People of Chad, arise and get busy! You have won the fight for your land and your rights. Your liberty will be born from your courage. Lift up your eyes, the future belongs to you. Oh, my country, may God choose to guard you. May your neighbours admire your children. Full of joy and peacefully move forward as you sing, Faithful to your ancestors who are watching you. "
