Musical Labor Performed in Northwest Tanzania

The farmers of the Banunguli farming group from Kisessa village near Mwanza, Tanzania, build tie ridges—raised earthen mounds into which the cotton seeds are planted. The accompanying kadete (one-string fiddle) player regulates the pace of the workers and spurs them on with his sung words of encouragement.
