This is a Basum dancing song. There are six verses of antiphonal singing. The song begins with a slow introductory phrase, sung twice, followed by dance steps. Each verse follows a phrase / response / dance steps structure. The song is about Duma (an explanation of the lyrics given by the oldest woman in the group follows the song on the full recording).
