Summary
Young Mpondo men and women of the Lusikisiki District, Cape Province, South Africa, sing for several gubura dances. Each song begins with the boys kneeling. Each boy sings into his cupped hand and bobs and sways to the rhythm. The girls stand nearby. At a signal, the boys rise and dance standing up. The word gubura is pronounced [gubuca]. The leopardlike snarl, or cough, or grunt, which the Xhosa make in their throats is audible throughout these songs (Tracey 1973)
