Description: 

Rika. Initiation song for boys and girls. This is a self praise song by boys and girls who are waiting during the Rika period prior to undergoing circumcision. The leader sings in a kind of falsetto voice which is much appreciated by the people - but on a recording gives no idea of his manly appearance. The calling for a special response during the course of the recitative is typical of Arusha songs. The full song is not available here.
