Adungu

The Adungu is part of the Ugandan string family; with varying features it is also similar to the Adeudeu.
 
Featured as a nine-string arched harp, the Adungu consists of an arched neck, which is connected to a wooden resonator. The strings run parallel to one another and are unequal in length. The strings are attached between the resonator and neck, where they are then tuned with pegs. 

Musicians use the Adungu to accompany lyrical songs, as well as creating solo pieces of music or within ensembles. In traditional music the Adungu is tuned to a pentatonic scale, but is also tuned to suit a more modern style, which they use diatonic scale.
