ILAM

A movement from the Ngodo xylophone orchestral dance of Regulo Canda, with 10 to 19 xylophones and 1 or 2 rattles. Some of the best wood for making Timbila notes grows in the district of this Chief, Regulo Canda. His orchestra, perhaps as a direct result, has been noted for its tone quality. His district includes part of the sea coast and is covered with thick bush with many cashew nut trees. It will be noted that the spelling of the titles of the movements changes with the dialect of the district. In the west it is 'Wemiso', while further east it is 'Mwemiso'.

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)
