Set in a Swahili village in Zanzibar, this story is about Bimwili, who is captured by the demon, Zimwi whilst searching for a shell on the beach. He imprisons her in his drum and forces her to sing from within the drum, to entertain the local villages in exchange for food. When they visit Bimwili's own village her voice is recognized and her father rescues her by filling the drum with sand, which of course fails to sing at the command of Zimwi. The demon defeated, returns to the sea. Verna Aardema is an American storyteller ...
