Ikisiri

Mivigha mara nyingi huangaziwa kwa mtazamo wa kidini au swala la imani. Mtazamo huu umejengwa kwa imani kwamba binadamu hutamani bila kifani kuhusiana na wahenga wake, Mungu wake, na mwishowe nguvu zaidi zilizoko juu yake. Matambiko katika jamii ya Kiafrika ni mengi. Kuna matambiko ya kuzaliwa, matambiko ya kupeana majina, matambiko ya tohara, matambiko ya harusi, matambiko ya kifo, matambiko ya kidini, na matambiko ya kisiasa miongoni mwa mengine katika jamii pana za Kiafrika. Olubeko ni tambiko la kifo linalofanyika siku tatu baada ya mazishi ya mwanamume mwenye umri au mwenye hadhi ya kutambuliwa miongoni mwa Abanyala wa Kakamega.  Mivigha hii huhusisha utendaji mbalimbali. Mojawapo ya utendaji unaohusishwa katika tambiko hili ni nyimbo. Kazi hii inapambanua nafasi ya muktadha katika uteuzi na uwasilishaji wa nyimbo husika kwa kuzingatia miktadha mahususi ya utendaji wa mivigha ya Olubeko miongoni mwa Abanyala wa Kakamega. Nadharia ya utendaji ndio kurunzi ya kazi hii. Nadharia hii inasisitiza kuwa kupitia utendaji, ujumbe huwafikia watu wengi. Matokeo yanaonyesha kuwa kuna miktadha tano mahususi katika mivigha ya Olubeko: omusee (baraza), khusirindwa (kaburi), olukendo (safari) na hango  (nyumbani). Kutokana na miktadha hii fanani aliweza kuteua na kuwasilisha nyimbo faafu za kila hatua ya mivigha hii. Muktadha ndio uliongoza fanani katika uteuzi wa wimbo husika
