The recording at the center of this item is a Shilluk song. Keb is a dance in which people dance without drum beats. But the person who leads the song must have a strong voice, sometimes the song is led by two people. This song shows that Papwojo Youth have increased in number, and they need more dancing mates, so the composer starts the song by asking permission from the youth leader to allow him to compose this song, because he knew that the song will motivate the youth. The composer says: Papwojo Youth dance well; small girls wish to grow up fast so that they dance with Papwojo Youth. The composer says that Papwojo is a strong village; it killed a lion alone while its neighbor, Ayijdhajo, feared to fight the lion.
