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.
