Hoima district [?], Uganda
unidentified (trumpet set)
Wachsmann, Klaus, 1907-1984
Item notes : Wachmann's original recording no.: 49.05. Item notes : Culture group in available documentation marked as Hoima [Hoima is a district along the northeast shore of Lake Albert in the Rift Valley and the hills above the valley; it is also the capital of Bynyaro Kingdom; the culture group may therefore be Banyoro [Nyoro language] since it is almost certainly the royal band, or it may be Gungu since this is the language spoken in the Hoima district, neighbouring the Nyoro and, further South, the Tooro]. Performer notes : Side-blown trumpet set (almost certainly the royal band)
