Were-hyena
Deadly
Origins-Many parts of Africa
In the Kanuri lauguage of the former Borno Empire in the Lake Chad regiieon, werehyens are called "bultungfin" roughly tranlated to “I change into a hyena” It was once belive that one or two village in the region were home to many were hyena such as Kabultiloa
  Belief in the bouda is also present in Sudan, Tanzania and Morocco.
In Western Sudanic folklore a human hyena
  hybrid creature is depicted as a cannibalistic monster who nightly transforms and terrorizes people, especially lovers. The creature is often portrayed to be a magically powerful healer, blacksmith, or woodcutter in its human form, recognizable through different signs such as a hairy body, red and gleaming eyes and a nasal voice. 
 Members of the Korè cult of the Bambara in Mali “become” hyenas by imitating the animals behaviour through masks and roleplays. These are evocative of the hyenas’ reviled habits, and may also be used to invoke fear among the participants into avoiding such habits and traits in their own lives.

The popularity of “Genre bending” (ie. indie classical, post-classical whatever) is a result of:

a) The inefficiency of the conservatory and traditional contemporary classical world to produce real, effective art

OR

b) neo-liberal appropriation to create new avenues and products for exploitation of creative resources (ie. more ways for the classical world to mimic the consumption-of-music-as-product system of commercial music)
