Mourning chant from the island of Mabuiag

“The wind comes from the north, the sky is black with clouds and there is much wind and pouring rain…

but it does not last – the clouds blow over and there is fine weather once more.”

From the Crocodile dance mask (from the Torres Strait islands) exhibition, part of the Asahi Shimbun Displays at the British Museum.
