Description:Godaano Askamo, Maaddane Kabbaba, Berhanu Bilaato, Taagay Godaano and Nuro Shifaw perform a flute song, which was recorded twice; file 002 is a corrected version of file 001. The song can be played during farm work and be combined with a song called zubaake zuggaa balasha. The set of 5 flutes is called puttinput. The flutes are made from a thin bamboo species (shombak'a) and are of decreasing length. The longest flute is about 12cm long. The photos taken on the day of the recording (IMG_0340, IMG_0342) show the flutes and the group. The song starts with the two longest/deepest flutes (pittinpit) and the third (tiitii), fourth (tii'illin) and the shortest flute (tiitititti) join in. The names of the flutes refer to the rhythm that they play. The group photo shows Godaano, Maaddane, Berhanu, Taagay and Nuro from left to right. On the far right we see the flute player Addafiro Wotto (see session AW2013-06-15).
