ROOTS & ANCESTORS 1

Roots and Ancestors, Vol. 1 features traditional-sounding pieces from South Africa, including Zulu, Xhosa, and Bushmen artists. These are modern recordings that retain ancestral elements, and highlights include the jaw harp-driven lead track "Uthendo Lupele" by Madosini, and the vocal brilliance of the Ladyfrere Xhosa Singers on "Nontokazi."
