PIOUS ENTERTAINEMENT

(Version française plus bas)

Every Sunday night, the evangelical church of Nisag is full. For about two hours, groups of men, women and children follow one another singing or dancing in between prayers. Many young men seem shy or nervous about going on stage, but the women sing their hearts out and their voices are surprisingly high-pitched. (See video below)

Chorus

One of many women, singing

A smiling child in the audience

Girls singing

Nisag skirts

A HIGH-PITCHED VOICE: THE VIDEO

UN PIEUX DIVERTISSEMENT

Tous les dimanches soir, l’église évangélique de Nisag affiche complet. Pendant deux heures, hommes femmes et enfants se succèdent pour chanter ou danser entre deux prières. Les hommes semblent timides et nerveux au moment de monter sur scène, mais les femmes à la voix étonnamment aiguë, mettent tout leur coeur à l’ouvrage.
