User notes for this item
This is almost certainly music of the Jopadhola (a Nilotic culture group living in pockets of this region and who dance in the tyle Wachsmann describes. Jopadhola are also known as Badama (the Bantu name for them) and Kisoko lies in the middle of the sub-district called West Budama).
