    Folk Songs from Somalia

    Ed. by Annarita Puglielli - Roma, Roma TrE-Press, 2014
    This book presents a collection of folk songs belonging to the nomadic society of the central and north-eastern Somalia. The 191 songs contained in this volume range over a great variety of song types (nursery songs, work songs, entertainment songs) and witness an important aspect of Somali oral literature. They were recorded and translated by Axmed Cartan Xaange, who grew up in the pastoral community in the north-eastern part of the country.
