This field recording offers a diverse assortment of Uganda's many styles. Several ensembles are represented, two modern, the rest more or less traditional. The traditional instruments range from several kinds of drums to harp, xylophone, and one-string fiddle. While the best work comes from the instrumental soloists, especially the three harp players and the endingidi fiddler, perhaps the most unusual traditional performance is by the orchestra of agwara horns. This orchestra is composed of nine horns, each of which can play only one note! They create a melody by taking turns playing. The group could stand to work on its coordination but is still fascinating in its concept.(AMG)
