Title:Lyre and shulshula performance by Parada Zerihun
Contributor:Parada Zerihun
Contributor (researcher):Yvonne Treis
Description:Parada Zerihun plays four songs on his solo shulshula-flute (as shown on the photo linked to this session) and three songs on his lyre. File 001 is a work song called maalade. File 002 is called woysa; woysa is the name of the thin bamboo pipes (without holes) played in a sextette. File 003 is a shepherd song for which no Baskeet name was recorded. File 004 is a the wedding song bolade adapted to the solo shulshula-flute. File 005 is a lyre song in the kaa'ooda-rhythm - the performance turned out to be less good as intended, as the lyre was "dead" (zimbín háykk'ine 'the lyre has died'). The condition of the lyre affects even more the quality of the recording in file 006, which contains a gel'o-song, a mourning song. The recording was thus repeated in file 007, which was slightly better. Finally, file 008 is a lyre song called kurum, a song not attested elsewhere in the corpus.
Parada Zerihun plays the solo shulshula-flute and the lyre. He learned to play the lyre from his grandfather and the shulshula-flute from his father. Parada Zerihun and Messele Lipaato were the best solo shulshula-players recorded in the course of the project.
