ILAM

This song is usually sung after a funeral, with harp, likembe and basket rattle. Leader - Zegbe and Ndongo men and women. Chief Maki, Faradje territory, North East Congo.

The singers lament the death of a friend and in so doing demonstrate the fact that Africans celebrate their funerals with dances and apparently gay singing.
