The full Mzeno with the usual repeats of each verse is featured on this recording as normally performed in the village. Komukomu, the leader of the orchestra can be heard during the introduction singing the first lines as he sits at his sange Timbila in the centre of the front line of the orchestra. A fine typical Chopi tune. The woman who ululates at the end of the movement calls out 'Igumile' 'It is finished.'
