instrumental in happiness (part II)

The Very Understanding Girlfriend has given me the go-ahead to use her photos for an update to my previous post on the instruments she brought back for me from Mozambique. Pictured are the musicians who made the instruments, standing by their wares in a market in Maputo, capital of Mozambique.

She says:
"Ernesto the grandfather is in white and George the grandson in red. The string instrument is made from nyere wood, gazelle skin and coconut, they called it a chivocovocone. The other is a chigovia made from masala fruit."
Once again, such an amazing gift and having these photos to accompany it makes it all the more special.
