The women are saving the most deep inherited traditions of the people. In Socotra it is all the same – despite of the local men’s love and respect to basic Socotran folklore traditions.

It was a short period of 1970s-1980s when such texts could be recorded and such photos taken. They all are now the history archive of the island.

And it was a unexpected and sudden opportunity to hear the pure version of the Socotran folk tale of Two Brothers not from young or old men of Socotra but from
Fatima, a daughter of uncle Salim Sho`o and his only wife Maryam min d-il-Keshen.
