Performance note: Preceeded by clap. Tonal level raised when pot drums enter. Then drums fall silent and song continues. Drums again, with dancing. Flute enters - much overblowing. Then song taken up again, then flute again during dancing, then song again but chorus weaker. Dancing and flute once more, dancers turn away from mic for a while. Woman then briefly takes up singing while flute continues for a while. Man takes over singing again, then flute and vigorous dancing. No more items recorded. Recordist's note: In Peter Cooke's notes, this is PCUG88.20.3.
