Recording of a preacher, preaching in Walloon (the Belgian French dialect), probably addressing an Afro-Belgian community (from Congo): "... Chez nous les femmes travaillent beaucoup ! ... Elles gèrent des millions ! "

Two pieces of tape wound around the foot of a tree; the tapes are of different colour, hence probably from two different cassettes. One of them contains popmusic, the other, sung-spoken in Arabic, recitation of texts from the Koran (thanks to Myriam Aroua).
