This article is part of a study that was first initiated as exploratory fieldwork in the Mapuche communities of Island Huapi, Thawa-Thawa and Piedra Alta, Comuna de Puerto Saavedra, Ninth Region, Chile, where we observed the chants in situ, and secondly, as a descriptive analysis of one song, where we apply some theoretical contributions of Lord (1960); Ong (1987); Havelock (1995) and Peabody (1975), among others.The reasons why we are motivated to investigate this subject are, first, the continuing existence of the world of orality with its different discourses such as ül (chant); pentukun (salutation); ngül'am (education), nütham (tale); and secondly, because we consider that even when studies which are of great value have been carried out on these expressions from the disciplines of literature, linguistics, anthropology, music, etc., we still think the their essential aspects as verbal phenomena of orality have yet to be determined.
