Here's a delight: a complete mgodo suite for Chopi timbila xylophone orchestra. Excellently recorded in a Berlin studio in 1992, this is the full mgodo generally available on CD. Timbila involve carefully composed multi-movement music with topical lyrics (here praising the government party, FRELIMO), performed by several singers with as many as 12 large and small xylophones plus rattles.
