  • Description

    Item note: New song. Performance note: Sung by children in response to request for religious songs from the forest! With drumming on jerrycan. (Sounds European influenced with European rather than Twa harmonies.) Goes without a break into next religious song after neat drum cue. Peter Cooke says these are not songs to their forest God. Reply from chief interpreter is that they don't have such songs. Peter Cooke repeats request for songs belonging to the forest. Not Kiga. Noise of lorry passing by on main road to Rwanda. Performer's note: Batwa women. Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is PCUG93.3.9 (pgm 18).
