Description: 

Akisuku dance song for men, with clapping. 'Ewututu' is the happy noise made by the Ground Hornbill early in the morning. He is happy they say because he is with his wife. "Yalama Kapeni Kokileni-Keni, Yalama Kapeni."

The Akisuku dance is done by men and women in two rows shoulder to shoulder. They spring in the air in unison without apparently moving arms or legs but with a clear straight spring, up and down in time to the music. The full song is not avaiable here.
