ILAM

A Msego mourning dance song with Kayamba raft rattles, a gourd horn and whistling. This Msego dance started with the sound of the horn, followed by the leader of the group who sings the first verse. This is repeated by the dancers whistling the melody twice over after which the dance proper begins with rattles. Details from ILAM field card D7N - 7 & 8
