Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
A male informant explains that the song 'Nasi' was sung by the Swazi age regiments. The group breaks into song but are soon interrupted by conversation. There seems to be little direction in their song. Rycroft is trying to bring some order and starts to sing a song in an attempt to encourage them to sing. The participants find this quite amusing, however there is some useful conversation concerning the 'ingoma' which Rycroft sings
