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.

ILAM

Mourning song, with harp, mbira, bells and rattle. Zegive and Mvu people. Watsa district, North East Congo.

As a rule there is nothing in the song itself which would suggest to a foreigner a sense of solemnity or sadness in most African mourning songs.
