Item Summary

Title: SD1-051
Issue Date: 20 Jun 2015
Description: Genre: Oral history. Title: Pisa cabu. Lengu Nandene (b. c. 1916) tells about how the sacred healers, 'pisa' , in the past used to trance dance, 'cabu'. In this recording Bapak Pui is doing most of the questioning; How did they dance? traditional ritual dance with partly improvised lyrics that ridicules the party that is supposed to answer, like a riddle. Lengu also sings a few lines, after we (SD Yuli, Methi) begged her several times. Like in several of the recordings from this day, there are several voices, especially Mama Yuli, who is doing most of the questioning here. From the third recording session with Lengu Nande, 18 June 2015. She had said that she had no more tales, but she had (also a couple for a fourth session). Recorded with the AT2020 mic in the house of Pui and Yuli (chosen for all recordings with her). It opens with Mama Yuli's voice. Present were Bapak Pui, Maria Methi, and Mama Yuli, and a few of the obligatory neighbours and family members. From the fourth, and the last? recording session with Lengu. Only two titles this time.
