  • Description

    All notes transcribed from spoken announcements on tape: children singing - leader and chorus with drum accompaniment followed by discussion; [Gourlay asks]: how would they stop if you didn't stop them? - they would just go on singing it. [G]: but they must stop sometimes? - yes! there's no special way of stopping. there's no stopping point in Nigeria, in Africa even in the world! [G]: Even if the Benue plateau service is now the Benue bus service?! This must be a fairly recent song? Or perhaps its an old song with new words? Do you know anything about it?; [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 the Benue-Plateau Bus Service].
