The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. The composer of this funeral song of Chief Ayoker is unknown. But people think that it was composed by a relative. The composer was thinking that his relative, Chief Ayoker was bewitched by one of the families who take turn in ruling Acob Village which he calls "Paa Cøllø" in the song. Okyec son of Yor (Chief Ayoker), was highly respected. Moved by the song, Amaylek the brother of Chief Ayoker, went to King Gwang (1917-1944), asking for another chance, because his brother did not rule for a long time. The King gave his family another chance. So, Amaylek became chief in 1940, in place of his brother, Chief Ayoker.
