- A song to praise chiefs and notables. The chiefs in this country are all Hamitic Tutsi, whose height (generally between 6 and 7 foot tall) is in great contrast to the short pigmoid Twa whom they have ruled for over five centuries. The modality of this song and the complex pattern of the clapping are both notable.
