Zulu folksongs and dance , children's songs-Africa (Swazi) , imilolotelo (singular umlolotelo)
Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
This is a tape of children's songs. There is a mixture of Zulu, Xhosa and Swazi songs. This sounds like Zulu children's song. A woman leads the song, a group of adults and children sing the choral part. They clap together in time with the song. 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 taken from the lyrics.
