In the last issue of this Journal there was an account of a traditional instrumentalists course conducted by Kenyas Music and Drama Officer in September 1958. As a result of this course considerable information was gleaned about some of Kenyas musical instruments, particularly those from the Lake Victoria province of the country. In October 1959, instrumentalists were again invited to take part in another research course and twenty one instrumentalists accepted the invitation, fifteen again from the Lake province and six others from Digo country in the coastal area in Kwale district, not far from Mombasa.
