Description:Song1, is a song parents sing to their children to live well and avoid evil. Song2 is a song against the Bacama people. Song3 is an encouragement. Song4, speaks how hunger drive young people aways from Baa land and into the cities far away. MS joins in and sings an encouraging song for youth, and then a song about someone referred to as a squirrel. By not mentioning the persons name it is a culturally acceptable way to insult another Baa man. The last song is for Kasimin and it is normally sung at special events along with dance moves without beatings of drums. The session includes a parallel audio file with slow respeaking of the original text, including comments and free translation in English. For further descriptions of file names and tier names see the corpus manual available in the archive.
