Osingolio Londoiya - dance song for men and women. "Sing the chorus, you young men and women. For we are the brave of the country." While the girls sing the words of the chorus, the men sing the typical humming sounds in unison. A delightfully intricate song and not at all easy to follow on first hearing.
