Title:Kabba Folk Tales and Proverbs
Abstract:These Kabba folk stories have been recorded in the Central African Republic in 1998. They were told by gifted Kabba storytellers to a mixed audience of adults and children. Jean-Pierre Dingatoloum transcribed them. A number of different Kabba speakers, translated them into French. Rosmarie Moser translated them into English and Knut Olawsky into German. Traditional folktales play an important educational role in African societies. They express cultural values through metaphorical narratives and the personification of animals and mythical creatures. They contain covert meanings and messages and they are both amusing and thought-provoking.
