HUWULD NYUI

(Medium-Low Voice and Two Percussionists)

TEXT AND TRANSLATION

Yuwuldi nyuhuma
Hiyawu rsanahatco 
Kamo danyimamaitcoma
Tcunyuwuta nyonyoahangu-u

The wind is singing

 Beginning now,

There in front of me

The land stretches

Yuwuhuld ki-iki mumunaiku 

Yuwuhuld ki-iki mumunaiku 

Konyi kamho imuna 

Tcuwunta tcutcumaka 

mumunaiku-u

The wind’s house thunders

The wind’s house thunders,

I am going there

 To the land covered in thunder

Himo tatavaka yuwuhuta 

Himo tatavaka yuwuhuta 

Himo tatavaka yuwuhuta 

Wusika simaihangindangu 

tciya muliva-a running all over

To the windy mountain

To the windy mountain

To the windy mountain

The centipede wind came

running all over

Tcotcok vapamanda huwuling 

Tcotcok vapamanda huwuling 

Ngai hiyata nyuiyuta muliva 

Kungata nyuiyut pimihivi 

The black snake wind

The black snake wind

 came running here

Bound its song around me

Vanyi naiwonyim 

Vasipi muhuk naiwonyuka 

Mi-itco vanyita nanaku naiwonyuka 

Sisikali imunduhuna-a 

I came out swiftly

Holding a cup of water,

I am made to drink it

And turn around dizzily

Tata yanami ivakimu 

Tata yanami ivakimu 

Kunda nyi mulivukai 

Rsaingu mumulihi-i 

To the white cactus leaves

To the white cactus leaves

I came running

I came running faintly
