Tolo Ḥanfaḍe's song of accusation: an 'Afar text

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  24 December 2009

Extract

The subject of this brief paper is one of the most widely known sung poems of the 'Afar people. Hitherto unwritten it is nevertheless revered, sung and recited throughout the 'Afar-speaking world. The present writers feel that its fame is not undeserved, a conclusion reached from a consideration of both its aesthetic appeal and the historical significance of its message.
