User notes for this item
Kigezi district is in the south-west corner of Uganda (adjoining Rwanda). culture is Kiga (Mukiga = Kiga person, Bakiga= Kiga persons) or Nyarwanda (the latter applies to one small area of Kigezi on the border with Rwanda). this applies I think to all the recordings in the series where Kigezi is mentioned.
