Learn something new everyday!

Today’s Word: “Gamba”

Gamba which stands for “Fog” in the Vili language is located in Gabon. According to wiki, Gamba is or was a oil hub in a village of fisherman and huntsman gatherers.  Here is the link

Gamba is also an instrument which looks like a cross between the violin and cello hence the more common name of Viola Da Gamba. 

Here is a link to the New York Chapter of the American Society dedicated to this decades old piece.
