Rycroft asks a group of people about the song 'Kalobelo'. The crowd argue over the answer, some saying that it is a Swazi song and others saying it is a Zulu song. The dynamic level of the recordings is changeable: perhaps the microphone was being moved around during recording. The singer provides the lyrics to for the song.
