ILAM

Topical song with guitar. " At your home you give a person to the spirit Sikwembo. But at my house we only give a chicken to Sikwembo. Then we kill a second chicken and cook sadza porridge so that the spirit's fowl may come and eat both the sadza and the cooked fowl." The song refers to an argument between a man and wife and the diviner through whom the spirit is approached.

Topical song with guitar.
"Now we are well off, my wife, you don't want to know my relatives any more. You want this and that, but not to meet my friends. I have a child who was ill and whom I sent to the herbalist, but although that woman took my money, she did not give my child the right medicine. The herbalist in question was his own grandmother.

ILAM

Topical song with guitar. "If you have no child it is no good. Other women have children, they fill the village. There are many men here standing in the queues for going to Johannesburg. You, my wife, you do not want to eat porridge - you want rice. There is no rice here, because I am poor. Go to the rich where they can afford rice."
So she went to a rich man to get her rice, but now she gets no clothes, no shoes, and at last, no food.

ILAM

Topical song with 2 guitars, 3 basket rattles and 1 bottle. Chibanda and Kasena with 7 Kanyoka men. Territory Mwene Ditu, District Kabinda, Kasai, Belgian Congo. Recorded in rural Panda-Jadotville, Belgian Congo.

"The Kanyoka captured the Chief of the Kasai people on the other side of the river, cut off his head, put it in a pot of beer and drank the beer."

It is not certain from the context to which tribal wars this incident refers, if any. It may well be a form of boasting or braggadocio.
