Music from Petauke of Northern Rhodesia, Vol. 1

From beer songs to work songs and lullabies—and much in between—here is music from the Nsenga people of Petauke, in what is now called Zambia. Renowned ethnomusicologist John Blacking collected these recordings and contributed to the liner notes with anthropologist Raymond Thorpe, who writes about Nsenga history and culture. The collection continues in Music from Petuake of Northern Rhodesia, Vol.2 (FW04202).
