ILAM

This song is usually sung after a funeral, with harp, likembe and basket rattle. Leader - Zegbe and Ndongo men and women. Chief Maki, Faradje territory, North East Congo.

The singers lament the death of a friend and in so doing demonstrate the fact that Africans celebrate their funerals with dances and apparently gay singing.

ILAM

Work song (Carrying Sedan Chair), with harp, likembe, bekks and basket rattle. Zegive and Mvu people. Watsa district, North East Congo.

This tribe, like many of the non-Bantu tribes in this North East part of the Congo are very simple people indeed. The country has still few roads (1952) and the carrying of officials and others whose work takes them into remote parts is still common.

The chair or mashila which they carry is called locally Tipoyi.
