Interview of a Casette tape vendor whose collections feature the Musical Treasures of the Moro Underground Music

Contemporary Moro music comes in three genres – love songs or ballads, dance music used during weddings, graduation practices and other festivities, and the kissa chants, which are narratives with historical, folkloric or religious themes that often convey many life lessons.The most popular are Niawa iban Jasad (Adam and Eve and the story of Creation), the Ten Commandments, and the story of Prophet Abraham’s sacrifice.
