Ugandan multi-instrumentalist, composer and musical instrumental innovator Ssewakiryanga James Jr., better known as Ssewa Ssewa, plays superb modern Ugandan music rooted in tradition. One of the main instruments he uses on his new album Nva K’la (“From Kampala”) is the janzi harp. This is a new musical instrument designed by Ssewa Ssewa. The janzi has 22 strings, eleven on each of its two extended, wooden necks. The strings on the left-hand neck are tuned in the diatonic scale, and the strings on the right side to the pentatonic scale.
