Description:Genre: Folk tale. Title: Roga cia waine (Roga searches for his wife). Lengu Nande tells , a tale about Roga whose wife is lost for seven days and nights. Roga's wife is supernaturally abducted, something called 'letu' in Palu'e, and something that has happened not so long ago (listen to Sebastian Sosu tell about Ware cane). Two sisters had too many breasts and they were shy. One day Methi remembered Lengu Nande, a great grandmother next door, about 99 years of age (born c. 1916), who had once been able to tell tales and was known to be skilled in 'togo' (tandak), ritual dance with pantun, together with her husband. Methi brought her over, and asked her, which was difficult because Lengu is almost deaf. It turned out that she remembered stories very well, surprisingly fluent, and she seemed to enjoy telling tales. So we decided to try recording the next day. Lengu had learned tales, as one of her sources in her youth/adult life, from X Ngajine. From the second recording session with Lengu Nandene. Recorded by SD with the AT2020 mic 2 February 2015 in the hime of Bapak Pui and Mama Yuli. With Maria Methi and others.
