The usefulness of music to mankind cannot be overemphasized in the society. That is, without music in their various life’s societal practices will be boring and life in its totality will be meaningless to people.

The African society especially is such that music   is indispensable in the life of the inhabitant. The Egbas, which happen to be the main focus of this study is particularly the home of varied music. Being an ancient town and among the first to taste civilization in the whole of Nigeria, it harbours Christian and other Western forms of music alongside its very rich cultural songs and dances.

This in essence means that though the cultural heritage and orientation of the people have been some what polianised and polluted, the people have not totally lost their indigenous practices in the area of music. By and large, those various music have brought about several developments to the people of Abeokuta (the Egba) specifically, music plays the following roles in the life of the inhabitants namely educational role, social role.

The Egbas in most cases uses music in most of their daily activities. Their believe is that there is a sort of magical power that is inherent in music. Music play significant role in every aspect of traditional life of the people of Egba and their emotion is been expressed through music, Egba music is closely associated with complex rhythms traditional communication, call and response styles and loud drumming.

The role of music cannot be overemphasized among the Egbas as it cultural activities, recreational activities, social work and cultural activities. All these activities have specific type of music attached to them.

Recreational music is the music for relaxation and amusement. It also gives peace of mind to its listeners. Human being faces problems in life in order to earn a living and they need to go out in search of daily bread and that occurs in different occasional works. Hunting, fishing, farming are the works of the villages, and they need to rest after returning from various tasks, they play, sing and dance by organizing themselves into groups with the motive of relaxation.

Recreational music is not only limited to tone stage of life (adult), it is also extended to children.

It also deal with the moral and social education and integration of the young and old members of the society. Also, poetry and saying in which the element of music is very close to the surface and all other activities that are conducive to the continual moral, mental and social growth of citizens. An example of such activities takes place in African village after supper when both the young and old members of the society gather together to make music in moonlight just for the fun of it.

The ritual music is connected with ancestral worship of tutelage gods. Music has two closely related functions as believed by the Egbas.
