ILAM

A movement from the Ngodo xylophone orchestral dance of Regulo Canda, with 10 to 19 xylophones and 1 or 2 rattles. Some of the best wood for making Timbila notes grows in the district of this Chief, Regulo Canda. His orchestra, perhaps as a direct result, has been noted for its tone quality. His district includes part of the sea coast and is covered with thick bush with many cashew nut trees. It will be noted that the spelling of the titles of the movements changes with the dialect of the district. In the west it is 'Wemiso', while further east it is 'Mwemiso'. Details from ILAM field card (H1O-9,6,7 -4)

ILAM

Lament with raft rattle. The rattle has seeds inside a hollow raft of stout grass stalks.
"They put poison in my beer and that is why I have nochild. I am very worried about the guitar. I do not like to meet anyone. I went to my doctor to make myself effective to get a child. I asked my uncle if he had seen the way I dance. Did the old people kill a man on account of his dancing - or does that only happen to me?"
