Classic Documentary on South Africa
rupertg | USA | 05/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a well-known classic music documentary on South Africa. A point of reference as a report and as one of the first explorations of this rich scene. It is mentioned on the 'Graceland' album cover notes as the place where Paul Simon first saw Ladysmith! Beautifully produced, edited and shot. Pleasurable!"
Excellent documentary, the soundtrack is even better!

"This is an excellent documentary not only of the South African music scene, but also about life in Black S/A during the aparthied days while Mandela had yet to be freed. We enjoy the entertaining music along with seeing the horrible conditions that produce this genre. However, if you like this, there is an excellent soundtrack of this documentary that features some music that did not appear in the film that was on a CD from Shanachie records. Y'all need to BRING THAT BACK in print and enjoy."
One of the best collections of S/A music

"This is the excellent soundtrack to the 1970s documentary of the same name about South African music. An excellent introduction to S/A Music. Ladysmith Black Mambazo contributes two really nice tunes (their second selection is a real toe-tapper) acapella. There is a lovely instrumental featuring just guitars and congas and an equally sweet gospel song. But the highlights are the live selections from the S/A counterpart to the Apollo Theater from the documentary. The tune that features the Mahotella Queens will get you hooked even if you don't have a clue of what's being said. You feel it, though. This is hard to find, but WELL worth the effort."
