The same reader (“Matt”) who sent me a link to Tarbiyya Tatali has just sent me a link to another interesting website: It is all about the history of the Duste Emirate in Jigawa State, Nigeria. In addition to English and Hausa texts, it has many interesting photographs and drawings by Hausa artists. Matt particularly likes one gallery:

This address has an interesting display of 10 traditional Hausa instruments associated with an Emir.  There are some other galleries as well, of interest for titles etc.  But I particularly like the display of instruments with the appropriate vocab.

Have a look for yourself and tell us how you like it.
