Arched harp, adungu. Probably made of acacia wood, with goat or cowskin soundtable with two soundholes. The neck is inscribed with 'Asiro nya pa mara ayo' (possibly 'G-d is love' in Acholi?) in green ballpoint ink.
The donor, Jonathan Hugh-Jones, observed this harp in use by Karamojong in 1981 as the smallest sized instrument in an orchestra of eight different sizes. He writes that the ensemble 'accompanies indigenous song and also mission hymns. Small sized adungus such as this are hand-held with the back of the body resting against the player's stomach. The left hand supports the instrument body just below the arched neck, while the thumb on the left hand can play the highest notes i.e. the shorter strings nearest the sound board. The right hand, mostly thumb and middle finger, plays the lower notes i.e. the higher positioned longer strings'.
