Santuri Safari: Gabaire Xylophone Uganda

We travelled to Iganga in Uganda to record the Gabaire Xylophone. This instrument takes 7/8 people to play and creates the most wonderful sound. Deep sub tones and higher complex percussive sounds which when played together create this very musical cacophony of unmatched magnificence. The lower tones were sampled to use as building blocks for East African producers to remix into tracks to rearticulate their authentic instruments in their contemporary genres.
