Mugabe, Francis Kitarara (omukuri)
Item note: Mixed omukuri flute music. Flute made by Peter Rumanguza of Kashenyi, his uncle. "He made it during the Second World War - it is the best model that my village has ever had. The man is Muhororo by tribe and Omubgabe by clan. Having retired from the war he is now a peasant, a good dancer and musician. He declares never to part with his flute but to leave it with his ancestors." Performer's note: Mubage is a munyankole who lived in Kigezi because his father went there long ago (be his birth). He is mutaizi by clan and his totem is engabi (bush buck). (Ganda). Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is PCUG64-8.38.A10-35.
