musical instrument; Isukuti drum
- The Adzido Pan African Dance Ensemble uses this drum as part of its performances, which bring the richness and diversity of traditional African dance and music to a European audience. The drum is carved with a Gye Nyame symbol representing 'Only god, symbol of omnipotence' and was donated by the Dance Ensemble as part of the Collecting 2000 project. The ensemble wrote: 'Isukuti is a dance performed by the Luhya tribe who live on the western province of Kenya. This is a social dance performed by both sexes of all ages except the very young and the very old. The dance is mainly performed during various happy occasions, for example marriage, circumcisions, harvest etcetera.'
