amakondere / amakondeere (side blown trumpet set)
Wachsmann, Klaus, 1907-1984
Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.28. Item notes : From available documentation: this song was chosen by the amakondere team as their best and favorite, as a farewell to the visitors. It begins with a solo trumpet call 3 or 4 times for perhpas 20". Note the drooping pitch of the final chord, like the exhausted bellows of a harmonium. Performer notes : The different names of the trumpets are: mukulembezi; ntabyo; njegembe; kagunda; kaisiki; and nakamunsale.
