The concept of feminism has remained a bane among women folk in Igbo society and even beyond. This paper critically examines the musical involvement of men and women in the areas of production and performance in Igbo society, to determine the factors responsible for greater or lesser contributions from either of the sexes. Sources of data included literatures, interviews and practical examples. The information gathered showed that men's greater participation in public musical activities in Igbo society have to do with some natural, cultural and societal factors and therefore suggests a reorientation to accommodate a balanced gender representation.
The article discusses the effect of technology on traditional music and how this traditional music can aid national development.
