  • Description

    In this song Garang is thanking community leaders who gave him cows and goats as an appreciation for his music. For those who may want to listen to the songs, let them wait for me. I met someone at the gate of my home seeing me carrying a goat and he asked, where did you get this goat Garang? I replied, this goat is a gift for my songs from Chol Tor, the chief of Biordit in Kongor. I also got another goat from Reech-Mabiorkuei, other from the family of Geu and the list continue. In the years back, I used to get bulls for singing when I was still young and effective in singing. (Garang is much older now than before when he was active in his music). Information about performer: age 50, both parents from Twic East (from the Pawel area).
