Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.491. From available documentation: Kalamba was the name of a driver who died in an accident. The title may well mean "I am Mbona Katende and I am singing about Kalamba etc". Performer notes : From available documentation: performed by ensemble of 2 globular flutes, Esosi, or Kasosi or Kigwara, which is reminiscent of the nshegu ensembles.
