[Girl playing a stringed instrument.], 1935 - 1936

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y304N/112

Scope and Contents

The caption below the photograph reads: 'The girls at Ekibondo played single stringed instruments like this. It is rather like a bow, and by altering the pressure of the teeth on the wood and twanging at the same time, they could play quite pleasing little ditties. When a number were playing together it was most effective'.
