2000 release. A variety of musics by the Mang'anja, Yao and Cewa peoples, found in the 1950s in the southern half of Malawi -- the beautiful bangwe zither, the magnificent tuned drum likhuba ensembles, brilliant xylophone playing, a small big band of kazoos. Such a richness of good music, creativity and identity -- and so well-recorded. Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Twinned with SWP's other Malawi album, SWP 014. Includes a 20-page booklet.
