The Heart Of Our Earth

The drummer’s sticks ricochet as they strike the stretched surface of the drum

Power and Dominion Echo in our voices

I can hear the cry of the land as our feet strike the ground with mighty thuds

My blood boils and thick sweat runs down my spine,

My breathing is heavy

The female youths shake their buttocks vigorously in tune with the rhythmic pattern of the song

The air is tightly filled with the chanting incantations of the priest

For today, the gods shall dwell among us…
