La résidence royale du Burundi: Le cas de Gishora (T) by Michael Novins

In September 2019, I apparently commissioned Burundi's most famous drum site, the Gishora Drum Sanctuary, for an hourlong performance for an audience consisting of me and dozens of local children who saw me arriving, so decided to watch the show.
