Mengo Lubiri = Lubiri palace of the Kabaka [king] at Mengo, Kampala, Uganda
unidentified (akadinda xylophone)
Wachsmann, Klaus, 1907-1984
Item notes : Wachmann's original recording no.: 49.34. Item notes : Culture group in available documentation marked as Mengo Lubiri [however this is the name of the Lubiri palace of the Kabaka [king] at Mengo, Kampala; the culture group is therefore most likely Ganda]. Item notes : [According to Mr V Muyinda and Mr E Ntambi Sebuufu who listened to this recording in 1966 in the Uganda Museum, Kampala, this item is "Soyabini wamutegana"]. Performer notes : The akadinda can have up to 22 keys
User notes for this item
This item is not Saggala but Omusango Gw'Abalere. I suspect your numbering of items has slipped by one place. items 49.27 (Wachsmann's numbering) onwards up to 49.42 need careful checking.
