Hugh Tracey recorded these Bemba songs in 1957 at mining compounds in Northern Rhodesia, now known as Zambia. Several of the songs are accompanied by the mumamba mbira, placed in a bell-shaped resonator with the open part facing the player. The musician’s wife rhythmically taps the resonator (Tracey 1973).
