ILAM

Praise song with Kipukandet 5 string lyre (5 or 6 string pentatonic lyre used by Nandi tribe in Kenya, also known as Kibugantet and Chepkong.) This lyre is strummed like a guitar with the right hand, the left hand stopping the five strings, like the Bongwe zither of Nyasaland. This gave 2 chords. Notes 1, 3 and 5 and notes 2 and 4. One string, they said, was missing, the lower octave of number 1. The scale was: 308, 256, 232, 206, 180, (154) vs.

The tune comes from the Luo people in the valleys below but has had Nandi words put to it. It is a song of praise for the Nandi country and other places which the singer and his audience have visited.

The full recording is not available here.
