Story Telling and Poetry
This i shall part of activities that shall be provided whilst on cultural adventure tour.
The Tongas of Southern have an indigenous type of music they call KUYABILA. Kuyabila is a form of sung poetry done by either one man or woman accompanied by a friction drum or a rattle also called MUYUWA. It can also be accompanied by an ordinary drum using a special rhythm. Kuyaba, a form of poetry recitals can be performed at a funeral or any time in everyday life in order to release personal feelings.
This is traditional music connected with work, in particular pounding songs. In the past, much of a woman’s life was centred around pounding as it took a long time to pound for the ordinary meals of the day.
When a woman was pounding she was usually singing, so over the years she built up quite an extensive repertoire of pounding songs.
One of the strongest draw-cards to ethno-tourism products is traditional dance and song and as a result this sector provides an important platform for musicians and dancers. The ethno-tourism sector is also inseparably connected with crafts and the visual arts. Almost all ethno-tourism ventures offer locally made or purchased crafts for sale as a value added attraction to tourists and an additional income generator for the ethno-tourism players.
