Dataset Description (abstract)dc.description.abstractThe recording at the center of this item is a funeral song (ayaar), sung by the performer about his father. Kwanyirath Bol Acyen, was born in 1888, during the Shilluk wars with Arabs. King Gwang made him chief of Lul Otango in 1920. He ruled for many years under many kings: 1. King Gwang in 1920 made him chief; 2. King Anay 1944-1945; 3. King Daak 1945-1951; 4. King Kur 1951-1974; 5. He died in 1981, at the time of King Ayang, at the age of 93 years. He became very old and could not even walk. People of Lul wanted to have him removed, but kings refused every time. At his death, many composers went to make songs. His son John Ogaac chose to sing these two funeral songs. [The same description applies to JohnOgaacBol_songKwanyirathBol1]en_UK
