For the Vai people of Liberia, the word suku encompasses a large repertoire of "songs" related to the practice of Islam. Their day begins with the call-to-prayer and ends with the evening prayer and songs. Ethnomusicologist Lester Monts has gathered, in these field recordings, a wide range of the musical expressions of the Vai people's Islamic faith, and has written comprehensive notes about these recordings and the Vai people and are included on a PDF file on this enhanced CD. These notes, along with maps, graphs, and many color photographs may be printed out or read directly on the computer.
