About the Embuutu Drum
The embuutu is considered a egoma enkazi (female drum) in the Bugandan society. The holy, double-headed drum is made of pinewood and decorated using cowries and pearls. The embuutu determines the main melody for everyday life, wherein women are mainly responsible to guarantee the survival of the community. It is their task to give birth to children and to raise the children and gather food for the Bugandan family.
