Kusunda Audio and Video Files Day 3 31072019 - Part 1

Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 8 audio files in this first part and 44 video files (21 files in this first part and 23 files in the second part, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3384958) of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on July 31st, 2019, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

As per our knowledge, these are the first recordings of Kusunda that are available in the public domain. The recordings constitute mainly of word list elicitation files with Kamala (also in the second part, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3384958), but there is also Gyani Maiya’s story of how they used to live in the forest (till she was 19 years old - in part 2, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3384958). Also, there are the cut sound files, triple repeated of Kamala's word list and the word list as a pdf file in this first part.

The metadata of speakers and recordings can be found in the pdf file.
