With a foreword by Abdilahi Qarshe, Heelloy investigates the origins and development of the "heello" genre of sung poetry among Somalis.

This study was the first and is still the only scholarly work on the poetry of popular and mass culture among a people who are renowned for their passion for poetry.  It traces the development of heello from its origins, and incorporates dual language transcriptions of selected poems from the period.
