The horn-flute was tried out by an elder in the village, but unfortunately it is missing a piece in the interior. We will try to find someone who can restore it, and they experiment with traditional Burundi music. Here are a couple of photos of the nzamba that was given to me:
The following video is of a couple of Ankole bulls having a good time sparing – a favorite activity of these local cattle. Compare the eye movements in the video with those of the cattle in the above painting of local Ankole – in both, the eyes are actively engaged in viewing their opponents.
The following video must be taken in the States, not only because of the audio (which is pretty funny), but also because the bulls are much too fat. Fatness has become a desirable attribute of edible livestock in the States, along with heavy marbling of the meat. Livestock here are thin by comparison and their meat is correspondingly lean. Good for making stews and chewy skewers, but not for tender steaks. To see the differences, check out the pictures of local herds in this blog compared to the video.
