Koire (singer, male, tongoli harp), unidentified (ankle pellet bells)
Wachsmann, Klaus, 1907-1984
Item notes : Wachsmann's original recording no.: 54.500. Performer notes : From available documentation: the heavy even beat of the pellet bells on the calves of the men is well reflected in the vertical shaking of the dancers bodies...the chief and the people did not approve of the rhythm.
