- The eight horn blowers stand in a row with the women opposite them while the dancers strut in between. "The visitors have arrived," a welcome to the visitors at a party. The Engwara are built up of sections of gourds bound together with plantain strings and reinforced longitudinally by lathes of bamboo. They are side blown and have a hole at the small end so as to produce two notes each. They vary in size from about 12 inches to approximately 36 inches.
