The recording at the center of this item is a song. Young men in the Shilluk Land visit girls if they want to persuade them to be their dancing mates or if they want to marry one of the girls. In this song, it seems that the girls know the young men from Yony Village, and are ready to receive them well. The father of the girls is more understanding than the mother, maybe because he expects the young men to marry from his daughters. The young men dance with the girls at the nearby village of Thwolong, which suggests that the girls’ village is not far from Yony. The song is a dialogue, and that makes it very interesting. About the name: Yony is the village of the young men. And the song was called by the performer "Wöri Yøny", that is he song of Yøny. So, the song is of Yøny Village.
