Johnson traces the heello movement from its origins as a youth culture which in its early days was concerned with themes of love and pleasure.

It later became the medium for freedom songs in the preindependence period, for the expression of modern political ideas, political protest, rallying songs and social comment, many examples of which are cited in this volume. Heello became the most dynamic form of Somali poetry in this century. This edition uses modern Somali script.
