Ogwang Clipper plays ‘nanga’, a traditional instrument with seven nylon strings in a wooden box. Clipper is one of the most experienced and respected nanga players in northern Uganda. He performs together with his wife Sabina Lawino.

This song is recorded at Mr. Clippers home in Kitgum town. Children from the neighbourhood gathered to watch the performance. The Acholi song title ‘Too pa Lakoya’ can be translated into ‘Death of Lakoya’ (an army officer).
