Lala songs with kankowele
In 1957, Hugh Tracey recorded these songs by Edward Kalunga at the Broken Hill mine in Zambia, then known as Northern Rhodesia. Kalunga comes from a group of Lala-speaking people of Zambia’s Serenje District. Accompaniment is from a kankowele, a fan-shaped mbira (Tracey 1973).
