  • Description

    Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.343. Item notes: From available documentation: the word "waitoito" refers to the manner in which soldier ants tumble out of the termite hill, first in droplets. The words "Bugebuge bwerere" describe this appearance as "dropletting". At the end of the song, the chief gives a speech thanking everyone for collaborating, acknowleding the presence of all Bulamogi, and announces a plan to let the recordings be heard in Jinja. Performer notes: From available documentation: players led by Saulo Magino
