Tulele mam'we weyu chiku chimbundu

This u chiku chimbundu dance is performed by a large group of Lunda women from Kasai Province, Democratic Republic of Congo. A goblet drum and a large box drum accompany them. The box drum player sits on it, using his heel on the drumhead to change the pitch, beating it with his hands. The goblet drum is also struck with a stick on the wooden side. A rattle and soft hand clapping accompany the women’s singing performed in a call-and-response pattern.
