It was a circumcision rhythm played in Zambia. It is played by striking two
sticks against each other.
'x' denotes the right-hand stick striking the left hand stick from above.
'o' denotes the left-hand stick striking the right from above.
'k' denotes a stick hit against a wood block
1=low mingonge (x+o)
2=high mingonge (x+o)
Mukanda: 6/8ish with a bit o' 4/4
:1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - - | 1 - - 2 - - 3 - - 4 - -:
:x - - o - - x - - o - - | x - - o - - x - - o - -: (#1)
:x - o - x - o - x - o - | x - o - x - o - x - o -: (#2)

You could probably also add a bell part, and a shaker on the 1 & 3, altho
that is not in the notation I found:
:d d - d d - d d - d d - | d d - d d - d d - d d -: (bell)
:s - - - - - s - - - - - | s - - - - - s - - - - - : (shaker)
