Abstract
Im Dorf Mukulu singen vier Klagefrauen in traditioneller Trauertracht, Spatenblätter aneinanderschlagend, ihre Gesänge. Die Vorsängerin singt zunächst eine Strophe vor, die von den anderen wiederholt und mit einem Refrain versehen, nachgesungen wird. In einer Pause trinken sie Hirsebier.
Shows excerpts of mourning songs as performed by the wailing women of the Mukulu tribe in Chad. They begin the songs soon after the death and sing intermittently until the burial. Of the four women shown here, two have shaved their heads as a sign of mourning. The singers strike iron hoe blades together for rhythmic accompaniment.
