Top Western Island Female Dance 1

One of the songs that the Top Western Island female dance team performed is called Li-Anna. This dance was composed by the late Mr Aaron Anau. His totem is the Yam Leaf (in KKY language, ‘daebow’) and his clan is Magi Buyi. This dance is about his daughter Ethel who has a baby called Li-Anna. One day she would like her baby daughter, Li-Anna to go to sleep before she goes to work, so Ethel tells Li-Anna she needs to go over to her Aunty, who will help get her to sleep, so that Ethel can go back to work.

Another song performed by the Top Western Island female dance team was called Rose Bay. This is the name of a house on Boigu Island, as all the houses have names. This song was composed by Mr Quoistin Toby. This song tells the story of how Quoiston was sitting at the front of his house and he was looking at the view in between the other houses, of the beautiful breeze blowing on the ocean.
