Description: 

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.
