The Source of Sound

The Source of Sound episode 82: Sudan.
Lyres, the Nuba and Waza Wind Orchestras.

A broadcast on the multifaceted music of Sudan. We start in northern Nubia with songs accompanied by a kisir – as the lyre is known there – frame drums or taar, dance songs sung without words, the Hm Bee genre, and a song accompanied by the sound of a water wheel. Next, we move on to music from the Nuba people, who are best known for appearing in photographs taken by Hitler’s favourite film-maker Leni Riefenstahl, but whose music was rarely recorded and whose culture has now largely disappeared. This is followed by a number of works by inhabitants of South Kordofan of the Dinka, another wordless song by the Chalabla nomads and two Waza wind orchestra pieces played on trumpets and horns made from gourds and other vegetable materials. Living on the border of Sudan and South Sudan, the people who make this kind of music have suffered a great deal from the long and often bloody war for the independence of the South. We conclude today’s programme with a number of ceremonial dances accompanied by a tambura, as the lyre is called at the Sudanese border with Ethiopia.
