ILAM

An Osingolis Longoroyo love song. "When I come back from fighting, then I will marry you, my love. I refuse to look at any other woman because of you. So wait for me my love."

Items of this nature are more recitations of verse rather than true songs. The simple response in this case is "A-a, hoiyo ya hoiyo yaho"

ILAM

An Mbeta pipe dance with Viyanzi vertical flutes, 2 friction sticks, and tin rattles.

The players start to play beginning with the pipe 3rd from the lowest. Each piper above them takes his rhythm from the next man below. If one fails to get started he holds up all the others above. The leader then comes along and gets his rhythm for him and his companions can then take up the rhythm until the treble player at last joins in.

Set of 13 pipes. The tuning of this set was as follows:- 584, 320, 440, 392, 336, 292, giving a pentatonic scale. The total range was just over two octaves.
