For centuries, the kingdom of Buganda (Uganda) was a place of unique royal musical ensembles, like xylophones, lyres, harps, trumpets, flutes and more. In 1966, the palace got attacked, the instruments burnt to ashes. The documentary gives a voice and a face to these performers whose skills are at the risk of being lost and we look upon a heritage unique in the world.
