Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
This recording is a part of a collection of musical examples which Rycroft used as a musical example in his paper on continuity in Zulu music (Rycroft, D. 1977. 'Stylistic continuity in Zulu Town Music'. In Essays for a Humanist an Offering to Klaus Wachsmann. New York: The Town House Press, pp. 216-260). This is a dubbing of a recording made in 1964. This is a recording of Zulu maskanda guitar song which was recorded by John Blacking in 1963 (unpublished recording). This song was played by young men at beer-drinking parties in the town (Rycroft, D.,1977).
