Azizi Gigalo & other children's rhymes &cheers (53* d) RE: Gigalo & other children's rhymes &cheers 29 Jan 12


For those who may be interested, I posted these three pages about foot stomping cheers to my Cocojams website: "Classification of Foot Stomping Cheers - Introduction"

Foot stomping cheers are percussive, choreographed, rehearsed movement routines that are usually informally performed by two or more girls (ages 7-12 years) while they chant a composition that has a distinctive call & response structure. In that page, I introduce some methodology to classify foot stomping cheer examples.

** "Classification of Foot Stomping Cheers - Examples"

This page serves as a demonstration of a classification methodology for the category of children's playground compositions that I call "foot stomping cheers"

** "Possible Sources For The Word Shabooya"

This page presents information about the history of the rap/foot stomping cheer "Shabooya Roll Call" and also provides information and definitions for words which may have influenced the creation of the vocable "shabooya sha sha shabooya".

Your comments are welcome on those pages.

Thank you,

Azizi Powell
