  • Description

    All notes transcribed from spoken announcements on tape: drums start, panpipes (zunzuk/zuzzuk) join in, hocketting; zuzzuk cease and male and female voices sing for a while; then zuzzuk recommence and so pattern continues, all the while female ululations continue. [For detailed notes and cross references see: "A descriptive catalogue of recorded sound" compiled by Ken A Gourlay for the musicology section of the Centre for Nigerian Cultural Studies, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. See also: Ames, David W. and Gourlay, Ken A. (1978): "Kimkim: A Woman's Musical Pot" from African Arts 11 (2) p.60 for reference to Benue-Plateau Bus Service and p.64 top for discussion of structure].
