Wayo isn't the story of a band, but of an entire village in the South Sudanese capital Juba where everyone participates in the music process. In the middle of the village stands the kpaningbo, a huge wooden xylophone played by three villagers at a time and the gugu, a large drum made from a hollowed-out trunk, also has an important place in the rhythms of these Zande trance drummers. The rest of the village partakes on a set of smaller bells and drums that are passed from person to person. The result is the kind of polyrhythmic percussion in which songs never sound the same with a focus on the mesmerizing effect of the music.
