Notes

Mozambique is the longest country in Africa, and has a correspondingly wide range of cultures and music. The area below the Zambezi River is generally referred to as 'Southern Mozambique'. Sit back and be amazed by this musical richness represented here by 7 peoples: with xylophones, drums, mbiras, singing horns, reedpipes, vocals - and young girls playing ocarinas as if in a dream.
