  • Description

    Item note: Nankasa dance song. Flute melody in Ekizino. Performance note: The man played the flute as an interval during the singing and dancing of women. The performance is known as okizino and it is unusual to have omukuri (flute) played in ekizino performance. Omukuri is of the same shape as the Ganda ndere. It is probable that the song played here is not an imitation of any existing vocal song. This recording features Omukuri notched flute, Orenyegye (rattling box), engoma - double skin Uganda drum. Performer's note: Man from Ndaija in the county of Bwampara, plays Nkore [flute]. Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is on TAPE PC 8, TRACK A, item no. 15.
