Gishu [Lugisu (Gishu): dialect of Masaba]
Nasagasala (nyungu), Wambala (lwengere)
Wachsmann, Klaus, 1907-1984
Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.521. From available documentation: played for beer parties. Performer notes : From available documentation: Mr. Nasagasala is the son of Wanakwangwa. Both performers are from Bulceke. [The nyungu and the Iwengere are both percussion idiophones. One is a percussion pot and the other a percussion beam, however it is unclear from the documentation which is which. According to chapter one of part two of Trowell and Wachsmann (1953) "Tribal crafts of Uganda." OUP, both the percussion pot and trough are known as ikokolo in Gishu.]
