Whilst in Uganda recently I was turned onto loads of amazing music.

The area of Buganda has a reputation for some amazing music as this youtube clip shows.

The rhythmic and melodic lines on the Ugandan xylophone or Akadinda are out of this world and combined with the one string instrument, Ndingidi or Tube Fiddle make something that is so original and out there. The xylophone sounds almost like some sort of electronic instrument…

  1. I just returned from my second trip to this country, and I recorded a bit of similar music. Do you have more of this? Do you make regular trips over? I plan to keep going back and digging deeper. Let me know more if you can (email below)
