Keywords: Mbira, Musical instruments -- Africa

Abstract

During three research trips in fourteen countries of Sub-Saharan Africa I have quite often met and recorded this instrument. Incited through Hugh Traceys extensive list I should like to provide some names from the regions I have visited, as a supplement. After that, we shall try to see what conclusions might be drawn from the various names given in the combined lists
