"However well a woman may cook, her husband is never satisfied". A song that will appeal to women everywhere. The tuning of the harp was 284, 212, 190, 172, 142 v.s. It is interesting to note the apparent difference in tone between the scale of the harp and the voice.

Iganitiyo, the harp player, made friends with Chief K Omudeka and he visited him at his place over the border in Kenya. He was surprised at the great amount of land under cultivation there. He entertained the Chief every evening of his visit by playing and singing to his Adedeu harp. The full song is not avaiable here.

"The small rough knot that spoils good work". He goes on to say " If your mother has no wisdom, how can you have wisdom?" " I married a beautiful woman, but I left her for she was diseased."

If a small imperfection spoils an otherwise good work, they call the obstruction a "knot", as in a string.

 "Song of the drum". Dance song. Large wooden slit drum with feet, 3 conical drums, cross laced and double headed, metal hand bells. The conical drums were all called either Gaza or Ndimo. The slit drum is Gugu or Bugu. The beaters of the conical drums are called Luiringwa Gaza. The method of playing the slit drum is unusual, as the player sits astride his drum and may even rest one leg along its length. The small ebony carvings from this district demonstrate this stance.
