  • Description

    All notes transcribed from spoken announcements on tape: Malagun village, 9th June; [drums start, horns (perhaps gugwa) join in hocketting, then they stop and male singers (leader and chorus, antiphonally) start up. Horns and singers then play/sing alternately while the drumming continues throughout]. [For detailed notes and cross references see: "A descriptive catalogue of recorded sound" compiled by Ken A Gourlay for the musicology section of the Centre for Nigerian Cultural Studies, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. See also: Ames, David W. and Gourlay, Ken A. (1978): "Kimkim: A Woman's Musical Pot" from African Arts 11 (2) p.64 top for discussion of structure].
