ILAM

Topical song with clapping and five string Adedu horizontal harp, leg rattles and 1 side blown Aluti horn. The tuning of the harp was 284, 212, 190, 172, 142 v.s. It is interesting to note the difference 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 which was under cultivation there. He entertained the Chief every evening of his visit by playing and singing to his Adedu harp. The full song is not available here.

ILAM

Topical song with Auleru, vertical flute, open, four notes.

A clever use of the lower and upper octaves in the pipe. The lower follows the higher. The player blows across the square end of the open pipe.

ILAM

Lament with seven Dongo Likembe, clapping and rattles.

Poor, beautiful young Arigina died before she could be married. Death, they say, is no repector of persons, it comes to young and old alike.

An interesting example of the crossed rhythms between the instruments and voices.
