Genre:
Discourse
Description:
This is a session with p078. It was more interview style with p002 guiding the lady towards topics that interested him. I have the feeling that the initiated older women like to reminisc about the older times, when the sacred forests were in full swing. I have not encountered that with the men. Maybe one of the reasons is that these female secret forests empowered them. After talking about the history she sings samples of the songs that used to be sung during the festivities of the sacred forest. The session was held on the front porch of the house we were sleeping in (cf. session 20120312). I used this still as a session to show them how to handle the microphone (see 20120313d).
