For the sake of a song

Happy (lerri) Song No.1

TRACK 4 (Mar88-41-s04) Song 2: Happy (lerri) Song No. 1

In this short ceremonial performance of the song, which follows that of 1968 in all major respects (including the suspension of beating for the first text phrase of the second vocal section), the sounds of dancing and/or mourning relatives can be heard. The 1988 performance is, however, slightly faster in tempo (141bpm) than the 1968 performance (138bpm). This may be because it is danced in a ceremonial context.
