Description:Genre: Medicine/huru. Bernadetta Paji recorded, morning, 23 June -15, sitting on the 'woga' bamboo plattform of Paji's thatched adat house, with grass ('ci'i') reaching all the way to the woga. We were only the two of us, and a cat that kept miaowing. Outdoors condition: I handheld the Zoom and recorded with the internal microphones. This part of the (one) recording is a 'huru', a disease and its cure, that is to cure people with chewed areca nut and piper betel ('ngiru huru'), and other ingredients. This one is 'huru mbesi' and uses no extra plants, only "woman man" stones that are scraped with iron ('mbesi'). The symptoms of the 'huru' are aching lower back, hip; hernia.
