Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
A woman sings a Zulu umlolozelo (plural imilolozelo) children’s song. Rycroft joins in and attempts to help the singer to remember the song. Rycroft wants to sing the singer an ingcekeza initiation song which Princess Magogo knew. He thinks that the words are wrong. He reads the song to her but she does not recognise it. Rycroft asks her about the song 'Nqoyi nqoyi' but she does not know it. This discussion is cut off.
