2007 release. The lesiba mouthbow meditative sound, almost abstract but definitely breathing an array of overtones, music of the ancestors, music of birds and mountains, a sound that could only come from Africa. This ancient instrument is the national instrument of the Kingdom of Lesotho, and it is alive and well -- good news, as so many traditional musics from central, eastern and southern Africa have disappeared within the last 50 years. On his trip to Lesotho in 2006, Michael Baird recorded what he found -- many lesiba players, and another herdsman's instrument, the sekhankula bow, and some old-style Sotho concertina. Includes a 24-page booklet.
