Know your Culture – The Burham Spirit.

“The Burham is a dance performed by spirit figures who have come to dispose of the remaining properties of a deceased person. It is the final stage of the mortuary process where the remaining properties of the deceased are ritually destroyed and burnt. The songs speak of the exploits of the deceased person and explain why the spirits have come to perform the final stage of the mortuary sequence”  Dr. Simet – Papua New Guinea Cultural Commission 1993 – 2016.
