Description
"May the Omwami go in peace, may he prosper and be with God." The Batwa are Pigmoids and the Cout singers were drawn from their ranks. In this instance the women were all wives of potters, pottery being one of the Twa crafts. The second song is a good example of organum singing with its incidental harmonies.
