I am now speaking again

Our song, there in Arbore, that is danced

When it becomes a harvest season in the area

And when the area becomes full of peace, it is about our song , dance that I will be speaking about

What is this song ?

now, in that day, an honour ox to be slaughtered

now again having praised an honor ox

again (having eaten the meat) the skull ofvthe honor ox will be hanged on a tree

Then, what they do ? they play, have fun and dance with song called Ara

afterwards what happens, boys paint themselves with white mud

The girl wear decorated goat skin and come

Then , in that day , they sing, dance, have fun and play

Additionally in the wedding day , in the village where the girl will be wedded, they will dance Aarr and have fun.

On the other hand , they perform a dance called Kolle during the wedding day.

It is this kind of song/dance that Kolle initiate people to dance and enjoy.

During summer time in which cereals ripe

People dance at night
