  • Description

    Item note: Omukuri melody to accompany ekitaaguriro men's dance. Performance note: This recording features Omukuri (flute); orunyege (box rattle or raft rattle) enyungu (earthenware beer pots); the melody played on this omukuri (flute - ender in Luganda) is traditionally designed as an accompaniment for Ekitaaguriro dance. The player starts his part as soon as the song stops. He is always followed or even accompanied by a woman's solo song known as ekirembeero. Traditionally a woman never plays omukuri. Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is on TAPE PC 8, TRACK A, item no. 16.
