SONG TEACHING (Over 3 evenings)

Teaching of a song. Tierlul. We wend our way through the village to the Burra where there are about 13 men sitting, anticipating our arrival. They have mats ready for us and invite us to sit down. I ask permission to take pictures, mentioning that flash will result. They say it is all right. After setting up my equipment, the song leader stands and begins to sing. He sings with very little delay or stopping.
