Abstract Der Spielmann Hassan Tjari, ein Daza, spielt die Fiedel finini. Er hält das Instrument zwischen dem abgewinkelten rechten Knie und dem linken Fuß fest, mit der rechten Hand führt er den Bogen, mit der linken Hand greift er die einzige Saite der finini ab. Die Instrumentalmusik ist jedoch nur Untermalung für den Gesang, der im Mittelpunkt der Darbietung steht. Der Spielmann singt in der Sprache der Daza ein Preislied auf den Sultan von Mao.
The musician Hassan Tjari, a Daza, plays the fiddle finini. He holds the instrument between his right knee squared and his foot. With his right hand he moves the bow, with the left he strikes the single string of the finini. The instrumental music, however, is only accompaniment to the song which is the main presentation. The musician sings, in Daza, a song in praise of the Sultan of Mao.
