The traditional Musical Instruments of Tanzania  

The traditional Musical Instruments of Tanzania

presents the traditional musical instruments of Tanzania
according to four categories familiar to musicologists

A primary concern is to preserve the ethnic musical heritage of Tanzania in an age in which traditional music is being displaced, if not obliterated, by the continued encroachments of western electronic music. In the closing words of Lewis' introduction: „If Tanzania is losing its traditional music, then at least there is a record of the musical instruments available. And perhaps this work will spur people to record a complex and often beautiful musical culture and perhaps to act to reverse its decline.“
