Note: Music from the "pagan lateau" of Nigeria recorded in or near the city of Jos by Stanley Diamond. This area is called the Middle Belt. Itinerant musicians came to Jos to play for entertainment in the millet beer dives. They played "social" music in western sense, used as background to conversations, etc. Such music is less complex and energetic than Anaguta drumming, for example. Some of Diamond's recordings were field recordings, others were done at Diamond's request. Some of the music samples heard here were recorded at a National Day celebration for the whole district. This is political rather than ritual music (as in Brazil). Samples of women singing (call and response) accompanied by men playing instruments. Men and women dance separately. Anaguta are a Bantu-type people intermingled possibly with a negrito component. Hunter gatherers who may have recently become horticulturalists. Discussion of instruments including two types of irzum (harp), horns, an oboe played by a master musician, various banjo-like guitars (mola, a seven-stringed guitar) fiddles, flutes and drums. The butcher's drum or Kalangu is a specialized instrument used when slaughtering cattle and when butchers get married.
