Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
There is no documentation accompanying this recording besides the title 'Beach Hotel Group'. This is a recording of a number of guitars and violins. The music could be described as South African 'marabi' style, and is characterised by a falling melodic lines (played on the violin) and a cyclical three-chord riff strummed on the guitars. A number of the musicians sing in this song.
