|Nyumba ya mwari witu | East African||
A dance song, Njama for old men. "My daughter's hut is thatched with reeds and the bushy tails of cows". The song has ten verses, the first three repeated. The accent or stress on the ultimate syllable, instead of on the penultimate, might indicate mission influence in this song. Local linguists would be able to determine this point.
