for Voice, Clapping and Rattles

Transcribed from the performance of the !Gubi Family by Bokani Dyer

Duif (The Afrikaans word for a Dove or Pidgeon) is a traditional song imitating the sounds of the dove and its representation in the spirit world.

A dove is regarded as a sacred bird in the Kalahari where many Khoi live.

In the desert it is very rare to see a dove flying overhead, especially a white dove. As such, when one sees a dove flying overhead in the desert, it is considered as a sign of good luck.
