BLACK ACRE
CLAP ! CLAP !

A1 THE HOLY CAVE
The Holy Cave contains the spirit of Sahkii (the Goddess Mother of the Island). The prophecy of the ancient book of Tayi Bebba says that Sahkii will appear when the skies become rosy, the Island will glow with pure energy and the whistling of the wind will play the three holy notes - ‘Sahkii is among us’.
A2 ASHIKO
Ashiko is a giant elephant coming from the mount of Jzimpo Mima (or Big Dwarf) to defend Tayi Bebba whenever it is attacked by invaders. Being a sacred creature, it cannot attack, just defend without killing,in order to minimize the damage to the Tayiians and to their land.
A3 THE RAINSTICK FABLE
Zium Kaah (or Rain Book) is a small book of fairy tales and spiritual dances, dedicated to the fertility of the soil on the Island. The most special tale of all is the Rainstick Fable. It tells of the magic wand used by the sorcerer of Tayi Bebba (Opete), who controlled a huge hurricane that blew the Island away into a distant land.
A4 KAWASI
Holy Magic is the magic practiced by the sorcerer of the Island. He is Kwasi, the son of the legendary Opete. His magic powers are linked to the four elements: earth, air, fire and water. The Rain Stick or wand left to him by his father, is able to amplify the power of his magic, and is also able to treat Tayiians from any illness or injury.
B1 BLACK SMOKES, BAD SIGNS
There is a black cloud that, as an alarm, indicates the presence of evil. It rises up above the seas around the Island, it gets up in the skies darkening the sun. At night, it is announced by the howling of yanboy (wolves of Mount Jzimpo Mima). The seas retreat and the winds blow in the forests of Tayi Bebba, its echo expanding throughout the Island.
B2 CONQUEROR (ACTION / ASSAULT / CONQUEST)
greedy and bloodthirsty invader is about to land on the Island. The conqueror's action plan is ruthless. A terrifying battle cry announces the imminent assault. Their tenacity is unstoppable. To avoid further damage and make sure that Ashiko does not intervene, the conquerors force the Tayiians to abandon their homes.
B2 CONQUEROR (CONSEQUENCES / MEMORIES)
The suffering of the Tayiians is great. Their serenity is essential to the entire island. Without it, Tayi Bebba cannot feed on the lunar magnetism and fades away more and more each day. The conquerors are well aware of the consequences they have on the Tayiians and the Island.
B4 CONQUEROR (REMORSE / WITHDRAWN)
A collective examination of conscience brings the invaders to make a wise choice. It's time to retire, to give back to the Tayiians what they took with violence and help them to recover their energy. The invaders have converted their souls and they want to convey serenity to the place, so the Tayiians offer them the opportunity to remain on the island and take a part of its everyday life.
C1 BURBUKA
Burbuka is a blend made ​​from the herbs of Jzimpo Mima. It is extracted and then dried in the greenhouses of Ibsomu. The Ibsomu is made by enclosing the Burbuka in a large leaf and smoking it. Its principle ingredients relax the body membranes. It is practiced exclusively when celebrating important events.
C2 SAHKII (XIRHUU)
Kwasi the sorcerer was astonished by this new kind of emotion he had never felt before. The Tayiians see coincidences as a sign of their creator appearing. So Kwasi brought together all the people to baptize the newcomers in the waters of the Holy Cave. Sahkii’s Prophecy had come true. The Goddess had arrived on the island.
C3 SAHKII'S ELEVATION FEAT. DJ KHALAB
There is fear of a fierce hurricane of devastating force that could destroy Jzimpo Mima. The discovery incites panic among the Tayiians, but after a long discussion between all the inhabitants of the island, a decision is made. Beneath the tip of the Jzimpo Mima there is a hidden way home.
C4 KWASI'S STORM (TAPE DUB)
The Kyanumi is undoubtedly the most powerful hurricane that has ever been seen on the island. Only Sahkii has the power to manage, direct and modulate its frequency until it vanishes. The last debris lays on the ground leaving in a muffled sound. What they see in front of them is amazing.
D1 UNIVERSAL MODULATOR (KUJHMAK)
Jzimpo Mita has lost its peak. The huge green pyramid that dominated the whole of Tayi Bebba is now flat. On its top there is a giant latch with an incision in Jikzu. The Island starts moving and shaking. Through Ashiko, the Gods reveal to Sahkii the true story of the Island. Sahkii has something to tell to the people of Tayi Bebba.
D2 SAHKII'S KNOWLEDGE
The Jikzu tells: ‘Go earth explorer, discover new worlds and bring back new knowledge. We belong to the Kuj Yato Galaxy. We arrived here centuries ago to explore new knowledge and to bring it back to our land. All that remains is for us now is to return.’
D3 UNIVERSAL MODULATOR (UJMUBUAM)
Before using the Universal Modulator to travel, it is necessary to make sure that the roots of Jzimpo Mita are removed, so all the people on the Island climb the mountain and start scraping the bark of its trees. Tayi Bebba is flying!
D4 SAILING IN THE SEAS OF WOOD
Everything becomes smaller as the Island moves torwards the skies. The inhabitants run to take shelter in their homes. Once in space, they discover that an infinite network of branches expands throughout the universe: a network of communication between all the galaxies.
D5 KUJ YATO
As the Island slows down, breaking away from its branch conductor, it begins to approach a large celestial nebula. Slowly crossing the energetic fiber rings, the Tayiians are taken by a great sense of happiness. All the people come out of their homes. The image they see is more than spectacular.Tayi Bebba has finally ended its long exploration.
