A banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology who heralds the death of a family member. Dr. Zarka shows how this wailing female ghost connects to the very real Irish tradition of keening: a rhythmic wailing and mourning performed by women as part of the death ritual. Part of the "Monstrum" series.
