The spirit of a nearly extinct musical heritage from Kenya and Tanzania.
This album captures the spirit of a musical heritage, now nearly extinct. Music and medicine are combined in the indigenous practice of witchcraft: music takes on the power of medicine, and medicine becomes associated with the healing sound of drums, interwoven with beautiful threads of melody. Music content includes: Mwari Initiation, Spirit Dance, Funeral and Witchdoctor Dances. (Nonesuch Explorer Series: 7559-79708-2)
