How Nigerian Music Can Help You Choose a Ripe Watermelon

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

The quickest way to decide if a watermelon is ripe or not is by tapping on it. And if you’re having trouble detecting the subtleties of the sound, listen to some Nigerian traditional music to get your ears attuned. Nigerian researcher Stephen Onwubiko has found a link between the sounds of drumming in traditional Nigerian music and the sound of fingers drumming on watermelons in the markets. His team will present the findings at the 177th ASA Meeting, May 13-17.
