how Camões described East Africa Coast inhabitants , 1575

Of cotton cloths were dressed;

Of various colors, white and striped;
Some bring itself girded round about;

Other mode drafty under his arm;

 From the waist up are naked;

For the weapons are machetes shields;

With caps on the head,

and sailing Anafis playing.)

Lusíadas . Luiz de Camões,1572
