Notes de A. P. Elkin :
"The Maraian of central Arnhem Land. The first third of 9B [Disque 9_Face B] are recordings of secret ritual ; calls to the "shades" by the leaders and rhythmic and imitative noises made by the "actors" can be heard. None of this should be broadcast in Australia. Two-thirds of 9B is a sacred Maraian hymn or psalm chanted by an old Songman on the secret ground."
cf. Australian and New Guinea Musical Records, A. P. Elkin, Oceania, Vol. 27, No. 4 (Jun., 1957), pp. 313-319.

Notes de Jessica de Largy :
