VIDEO: Meet the Acholi musical duo from South Sudan who traveled to UK for Womad Music Festival
The Acholi Machon (Old Acholi) duo (Gaetano & Cornelio) from South Sudan play the likembe, an acoustic thumb piano. They say their music is inspired by a long line of musicians and a love for their land.
Ahead of their performance at the Womad music festival in the UK last week, the BBC’s Sophie Ikenye welcomed them at Focus on Africa’s studios in London.
They played their song Acholi Kabedobe (Acholi Land Is A Good Place) from their 2014 album Lapwong (Freedom Fighters).
