A good example of Malipenga playing and dancing. This is the opening movement of the dance. The word Muganda which is the name of this dance is taken from the sound of the drums which accompany the singing gourds. "Men and women, togeher with the chief, you have come here to see the clever dancers. We come from towns where we sing like church organs." Are two melodies for this 2nd movement. There are two movements in the Mugunda dance, the second is performed with drums only and without the Malipenga gourds.
