Mwabawoli bani (The deceitful wife)

Mwabawoli bani (The deceitful wife)

Ruben Tankadi Mbuluwundi and a group of five Henga men from Rumpi District, Malawi sing in two-part harmony without instrumental accompaniment. Mbuluwundi wrote this song that tells the story about a girl who told her brother-in-law she was going to see her husband on the Copperbelt. But she took a bus in the opposite direction and it was clear that not only had her plans changed, but her affections as well. You can hear occasional high-pitched ululating during the song.
