Otuho Music:
 
Songs are essential part of Otuho culture and
tradition. Most of the history of the Otuho-
Speaking people is kept in songs. The Otuho
speakers sing during happiness and sadness.
They sing when a new child is born and when
someone dies. They sing when they praise and
when they insult. Singing is an essential part of
the Otuho-Speaking tradition and culture.
This NACO web page therefore deicts the
importance of Otuho songs. It also promotes
the traditional and modern singing talents the
Otuho-Speaking community members in North
America and at home posses.
