By Pacharo Felix Munthali
This dance is sweet
Ask Agama
The dancers dance
To the melodies of Indingala drums
The air getting saturated
He dances again and again
After dancing the whole night
He thirsts for more
This boogie is sweet

To bow out is a misdemeanour
But to dance again
From the breast of Chitipa
To the gorges of Nsanje
The dancers forces the drum howling
“Follow me…”
A plea monopolises the sky
This dance is saccharine
