We had a fun day yesterday with Emmanuel from IGIHE, a Kinyarwanda-language news outlet here in Rwanda. They came to interview Désiré and Marion about the piano-building project. It was an extremely hot day, so we sweated our way through it and showed off our piano in progress alongside the Lirika.
Lirika's original frame is looking a bit battered and bruised now, but we're ploughing forward. Désiré is currently making the bridges before mounting the frame onto the new piano and putting in the tuning pins, ready for stringing.

These help to keep the strings in place.
We'll post a link once the IGIHE interview goes live, and try to get an English transcript alongside it.
