    The tape box is marked 'Folktales (Magogo)'. There is no other written documentation, but these recordings seem to be dubbings of his field recordings made in KwaZulu Natal in 1964. This is an excerpt of Princess Magogo telling an inganekwane folktale about a father and his daughter. This is a continuation of the tale 'Yimi baba'. This story has excerpts of song.
