Yankandi A (ternary)

Ritmes

A Sousou dance of seduction. It is danced during village-festivals, marriages, etc. Yankadi is a slow dance whit boys and girls starting the dance in rows, facing each other. (According to Michael Wall: "In the dance 4 couples at a time dance with each other (and briefly with other partners) and the essential elements are eye contact, flirtatious movements and touching your hand to your partner's heart.") After a break or a whistle the dance can transform into the Macru-dance, which is fast a where the couples dance individually. The dance alternates between the slow Yankadi and the fast Macru. There is a ternary and a binary-version of Yankadi. The word means : "Here things are fine!"

Aaaaay woyahllah, woyallah, wonawally-oh
muxu wuhai guma, groupo de mai wufawn ma ma, wonawally-oh

or (same song in another language?)

ee waia-la,waia la, wonowalio
moe oe che chumba, Kankan nje fonié wofa mama, wonowalio

This is a song of welcome and celebration

Tela fa n´ma dugui donkhè ra tela
E tela yanfa dununyama mayo tela awa yire
Tela dugui donke donfe mufan tela
E tela yanfa dununyama mayo tela awa yire


Tailor, give me back the rest of my cloth,
It´s not right for you to use the rest of other peoples´s cloth!
