Description
Genre: Medicine/huru: Wilhelmus Ware, kampong Habi, Woja domain, desa (village) Lidi, was recorded with the H4N Zoom by Maria Methi 23 Nov -15 in the afternoon. Methi had walked all the way from Mata mere, severa hours, with her mother Yuli from Mata Mere to Woja, to visit family and to record. This huru is almost as advanced/elaborated as Ware's 'huru te'e', with several steps, from the making of a container, like a 'dhibo', made from upper parts of bamboo 'hero' . The container is filled with water, closed with cotton, hanged ('teo') in the plantation and activated with "threats" ('pake'). Several different kinds of trees are done at the same time. If they notice that fruit has been stolen, it is time to cook the water in the 'dhibo', which will hurt the fruit thief. Symptom: Stomach pain. The cure is applied to the stomach: ginger, 'moro' and tobacco (plus carved bamboo fibers from the new 'dhibo'?), betel (sirih pinang) and lime. Like in 'huru te'e', before applying the chewed mixture, one first utters a 'bhulu wa'o' prayer and throw paddy grains behind the back toward the west. Music is heard playing in the background throughout the recording, and it sounds okay, but is disturbing in the end.Notes. lea, moro, mbako, hero. (huru wae. WW).
