Yelli is one of the most ancient forms of singing on earth. It is made up of many beautiful wordless melodies, a multi-layered yodel thrown out into the forest night to enchant animals. Yelli ties the animals up with spiritual ropes opening up the forest for success when the men hunt the next day.

Loni is joined by the other women on simple percussion and hand claps. Mbongi joins in with her bass voice before all the others join in.
