Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.31. Item notes : From available documentation: hunting the bush buck (Engabi): 1. first alarm on horn; 2. alarm by voice; 3. neighbours reply on horns; 4. neighbours raise vocal alarm; 5. organisation of hunt is discussed; 6. organisation in more sober speech; 7. shouting to frighten animal in circle; 8. dogs' bells, calling for dogs; 9. the kill; 10. horn followed by horn chorus; 11. triumphant call Buswaga, discussion on division of meat; 12. final horn chorus, good example of drooping and fading final note. Performer notes : The engwara is one of the Kinyoro names for trumpets, related to the amagwara.
