'Recording of the Week' highlights gems from the Archival Sound Recordings website, selected by British Library experts or recommended by listeners. This week's item was selected from the Peter Cooke Uganda collection by Dr Janet Topp Fargion, curator of World & Traditional Music at the British Library. It was recorded by Peter Cooke in September 1987 at Kidinda village, Mpigi, Central Province, Uganda.
