2001 release. Zulu singing may be well-known nowadays, but the voices of two neighboring peoples -- the culturally and linguistically connected Sotho and Tswana -- have until now remained out of the spotlight. Their singing of songs of great beauty is both powerful and moving, often of ancient origins and containing much wisdom. And their voices are also very present in the festive ditlhaka reedpipe ensembles and eerie lesiba mouthbow songs, included in this unique collection of historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Twinned with SWP Records' other South African album The Nguni Sound, SWP 020 -- this is South African roots music! Includes a 20-page booklet.
