AmaZulu Heart Of Africa
Autumn – KwaZulu, Natal, South Africa. Some 300 singers and musicians gather in a hill top village for a once-in-a-lifetime recording session. The culminating tapes of traditional Zulu Dances and Chants were then integrated within the best traditions of contemporary Western song. AmaZulu – Heart Of Africa is the result of this unique venture.
