Various Artists - Lesotho Calling: Lesiba and sekhankula music
Recorded in 2006. The lesiba is a fantastic instrument: a mouthbow that is blown rather than struck or plucked, an ancient Khoi instrument that survives only in Lesotho today and performed on this disc by its best players. Music of the ancestors, music of birds and mountains. Another herdsman’s instrument on this album, the sekhankula, is made from junk metal and played with a horsehair bow – equally fascinating and beautiful music.
