Abstract

Alusine Bundu interviewed by Abdulai Bendu. Farmer over 60, maybe 70 – he can talk – known as “Black lawyer” (in Krio) because he talks so much – there’s a fun video recording of him and his brother providing proverbs, “dueling proverbs”. The town of Lungi, where he and his brother are from and where the recordings take place, is six and a half miles past Abdul’s village – others told Abdulai he was a good talker and the people were right, as he found out when making a special trip there. Sherbro, Temne, Krio. No school.
