ILAM

Dance music for Muchongolo Tumbling dance with 3 drums and clappers. Recorded at C.M.R. Mine, Transvaal, South Africa. The tumbling dance which has been developed by the Ndau people has not only spread south to neighbouring tribes, but has now become a favourite spectacle on the gold mines of South Africa, where its performance delights the miners of other tribes as well. It is usually acrobatic and humorous, and is performed to complex rhythms on the drums.
The performance of the dancers is frequently of a high order demanding considerable gymnastic ability. Details from ILAM field card (H1F-4A - B)
