Swazi folksongs and dance
Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
This is a copy of one of Rycroft's original field recordings. This tape is labelled 'Swazi choral songs'. A man discusses the song 'Udumisa'. From the discussion it would seem that this song carries a message of protest against the discrimination of black African people in Swaziland during the time of colonisation.
