Description
Tunes, like the bosun's piping in the navy, which drum and pipe the Mukama as he leaves his Kikale (house) to go his rounds or visit the Council Chamber or Court. The Nsegu pipes are made in two sections and joined together by binding with hide, or iguana skin which is shrunk or bound onto the two halves.
