Swazi folksongs and dance , choral songs-Africa (Swazi)
Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
This is a copy of one of Rycroft's original field recordings, this tape is labelled 'Swazi choral songs'. A group of women sing this Swazi song which is in a call and response form. There is little written documentation accompanying this recording, which has made it difficult to determine the performance context of this song.
