Yankadi B (binary)

A Sousou dance of seduction. It is danced during village-festivals, marriages, etc. Yankadi is a slow dance whit boys and girls starting the dance in rows, facing each other. After a break or a whistle the dance can transform into the Macru-dance, which is fast a where the couples dance individually. The dance alternates between the slow Yankadi and the fast Macru. There is a ternary and a binary-version of Yankadi.

Tela fa nīma dugui donkhè ra tela
E tela yanfa dununyama mayo tela awa yire
Tela dugui donke donfe mufan tela
E tela yanfa dununyama mayo tela awa yire
