User notes for this item
The performer was wrongly identified in my documentation. His name should be Livingstone Musisi, a colleague of Busuulwa and working with him at the National Teachers' College. He was formerly a royal musician - a member of the Entenga (drum-chime) ensemble in the Lubiri palace).
