Discourse
Description:
Abbaynesh tells about cultivation of ensete: how it is planted and the long process involved in preparing the ripe ensete plant for food material. She tells how the product is sold in the market and how much one can earn from it. She also tells how this material is used to make bread, porridge or various other dishes, some of which she says are important for children, others for women in maternity. Abboye and Asmelash raise various questions to which Abbaynesh gives elaborate answers. Half-way in the recording Abbaynesh demonstrates the way the fibre of ensete is scrapped from the bark. She shows the tools she uses for the work and tells their names. She shows 64 new off-shots (ziɗó) that sprout from an old ensete root which she planted. She tells how these tiny plants are then extracted with care and replanted one by one near the house to be rooted out again when they are strong and planted further back in the backyard. While Azeb (researcher) made the video recording, Asmelash (research assistant) made audio-recording using Zoom4H. The recordings are done in the backyard of Abbaynesh and Mr Ayyano, her husband. The latter's occasional comments, corrections etc. can be heard in the current recorded interview with Abbaynesh
