Music of the Sudan: The Role of Song and Dance in Dinka Society, Album One: War Songs and Hymns

Here is an opportunity to explore two genres of traditional song from the Dinka tribes of southern Sudan. War songs speak to the Dinka’s courage and ferocity, although the singers claim they are never aggressors. Hymns "reflect man’s reaction to the cruelties of a world he does not understand,...his appeal to God, spirits, and ancestors for their assistance," according to Dinka scholar Dr. Francis Deng

Extensive liner notes include English translations.
