Description: 

A topical song with Kipukandet 6 string bowl lyre (5 or 6 string pentatonic lyre used by Nandi tribe in Kenya, also known as Kibugantet and Chepkong.) One day a friend called on Arap Kapero unexpectedly. He sang "Had I a shilling I would have bought flour to make bread for you." The accompaniment of this song is interesting for the extra half bar just prior to the start of each verse.
