Subject: RE: Acceptable adjectives in folk songs
Correction-it has been my experience that the ages of girls who perform these chants are usually elementary to pre-teen, and sometimes slightly older [6-14 years].

Sorry about that typo..Few pre-schoolers could execute these synchronized percussive movements that combine bass sounding foot stomps with individual handclaps and body pats [and a little bit of hip switching and other movements from popular social dances]
