Description
The Bagungu people are fishermen and live near the eastern shores of Lake Albert. They are renowned for their cheerful rhythmic dancing with leg rattles. The water lizard skin membranes of their drums make for high quality drumming and clear finger work. The 'legevans' or iguana are found near the lake shore, they say.
