ILAM

Two orchestral introductions from the Ngodo Xylophone Orchestral Dance of Regulo Mikumbi with 8 Chilanzane (treble), 1 Debinda (bass) and 3 Gulu (double bass) xylophones and 2 rattles.

Regulo Mikumbi and his people are considered to be eastern Chopi as their district lies to the east of the Inharrime River. The old chief Mikumbi who died a few years ago - this information was written in 1955 - was said to be over 120 years old at the time of his death. The leader of this Timbila orchestra was a western Chopi as his name Zandamela would indicate. The recording of this Ngodo was made under difficult conditions, being constantly interrupted by high wind and rain.
