Description: 

A movement from the Ngodo xylophone orchestral dance of Regulo Canda, with 10 to 19 xylophones and 1 or 2 rattles. Some of the best wood for making Timbila notes grows in the district of this Chief, Regulo Canda. His orchestra, perhaps as a direct result, has been noted for its tone quality. His district includes part of the sea coast and is covered with thick bush with many cashew nut trees. It will be noted that the spelling of the titles of the movements changes with the dialect of the district. In the west it is 'Wemiso', while further east it is 'Mwemiso'.
