  • Description

    This is a copy of one of Rycroft's original field recordings. This tape is labelled 'Swazi choral songs'. This is a choral song sung by men and women. The song is in a call and response form in which the vocal parts overlap each other. There is little written documentation accompanying this recording, which has made it difficult to determine the original title of this song. Therefore the title provided has been extracted from the lyrics.
