As in the speakers that play the higher frequency on a hifi stereo system?

j.,- not in this context

f,- you boys are smart...but this is more literal or obvious than this meaning of the word, which is secondary! (not to my American ears tho?)

any other daring enough to make a suggestion?

I believe that word is Swahili for "Led Zeppelin"

to me, too, the immediate meaning is of treble and bass; the treble clef.

but maybe it could mean high-strung and trembling :)
