ILAM

Topical song with mbira dza WaNdau and deze resonator. "See I am crying, mother-in-law.
Poverty, elder brother, alack.
See, Sophiatown is bad, Patisoni
In my distress I think of home
Happiness to you all at Marange."
The singer sings about the conditions in which he finds himself at Sophiatown, near Johannesburg, where he works as a carpenter's assistant. His home, Marange is in the Chipinga District of Southern Rhodesia, about 400 miles north east of Johannesburg.

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)
