Summary

On the Botel Tobago Island in Taiwan, the first months of the lunar Yami calendar (July-August) are dedicated to buildings and collective festivities of competitive nature. They are punctuated with responsorial songs which can be sung in the Karyag way, that is to say “accompanied by banging hands”.
