Abstract:The author presents some ancient but hitherto unpublished songs of the Ila of Zambia, recorded by John Price, who worked among them from 1906 to 1934. The songs have been grouped according to the situations in which they were sung (children's songs and rhymes, initiation songs, beerdrink songs, songs of encouragement, songs for hunting and fishing, ceremonial hymns, begging songs, and personal songs). They are presented alongside their English versions, together with notes and background material. Bibliogr., notes, ref.
