From Zululand Roots to Soweto Street Singing...
An intriguing documentary filmed during the time that apartheid was still in full swing. A great deal of this footage was filmed clandestinely, which makes for a remarkable investigation into music that was for the most part censored, suppressed, or just plain ignored.
Performances and interviews with Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the Mahotella Queens, and Jonny Clegg make up a part of the film and the soundtrack includes studio and live recordings from other musicians as well. The bonus is that the soundtrack has extra songs not included in the movie!
