Katara Music Of Botswana

Traditionally, Tswana speaking tribes of southern Africa have in most cases expressed their cultural music primarily through singing with clapping, drumming and dancing with leg rattles to emphasise movements.

A number of instruments have been adapted in recent times, including the four string guitar, locally called Katara, which is typically played from above or facing upwards.
