Matooke bananas have nothing to do with FHIA bananas. Matooke are traditional landraces, Mutika/Lujugira subgroup, AAA genome. FHIA bananas are all hybrids from a modern breeding program. Some of the bananas in that video appear to likely be FHIA-17, as it was introduced to the region awhile ago and is popular for some uses as it is high yielding, but it is not Matooke and not an East African Highland Banana.

There are about 80 or so different cultivars of Matooke, many have dark coloration,
some with very black pseudostems. The photo above does not have enough details to be able to ID which Matooke it may be.

Matooke is the name of the food/dish made from those bananas, but the plants themselves have specific cultivar names.
