BBC has a very interesting program where a journalist, a daughter of an anglican priest, goes back to her native South Africa to investigate and possibly take up the call to be a witch doctor or sangoma. This is audio only and in one point she goes into a trance and you get to hear, through translation, the spirit threatening beatings!!

I told the witch doctor I was in love with you (dum dum dum dum)
I told the witch doctor I was in love with you (dum dum dum dum)
And then the witch doctor he told me what to do.

He told me: 'Uh ih uh ah ah, ting tang wallawallabingbang,
Uh ih uh ah ah, ting tang wallawallabingbang!'

One day we will talk about why people fetishize children, but for now I'll keep on the side of humanity that doesn't think the height of life is a drinking a juice box and eating a tater tot while defecating in their pants.

I think I will skip listening to the clip. 

Hearing demons speak is not on today's to-do list.

Being a witch doctor and an Anglican minister isn't mutually exclusive.
