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.
