Bigwala Trumpets perform for coronation anniversary

Following on from the recent performances by the Entenga drums, Prof. James Isabirye has informed us that the Bigwala trumpets performed last Wednesday (13th September) at the coronation anniversary of Kyabazinga William Gabula Nadiope IV of the Busoga kingdom. The trumpets can be seen here performing at Budhumbula in front of the Kyabazinga (the elected ruler of the kingdom) and processing behind him.

James tells us that soon some of the Bigwala players will begin paid jobs teaching the instrument in schools, which is a testament to the continuing success of this project, and the hard work of those involved.
