- The dance which follows the chanting of Awu Mungoya, Part I. Each man had a pod shapped metal bell or two tied below one knee which emphasised the stamping of that foot. Unlike the Zulu, the Gogo appear to stamp only one foot, and not alternate feet in this dance. The flute obligato lends an attractive rustic touch to the whole. This recording is part of the dance which normally follows the opening song, the sound of the leg bells and the Mulanzi flute being herd. The full dance lasts for a considerable time and only a part was recorded.
