2003 release. This CD is a selection of largely a cappella performances, sometimes with clapping, stamping and small percussion, recorded by Hugh Tracey. Listen to more than 600 Chagga men and women chant on the southern slopes of Mt. Meru, hear timeless praise songs by the Gogo, humorous songs by the Nyamwezi, lyrical wigasha dance songs by the Sukuma, and the unmistakable Maasai chanting. Vocals straight from the heart by peoples without any kind of identity crisis. Includes a 20-page booklet.
