Movie Reviews

Classic Documentary on South Africa
rupertg | USA | 05/15/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a well-known classic music documentary on South Africa. A point of reference as a report and as one of the first explorations of this rich scene. It is mentioned on the 'Graceland' album cover notes as the place where Paul Simon first saw Ladysmith! Beautifully produced, edited and shot. Pleasurable!"
One of the best collections of S/A music
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 05/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the excellent soundtrack to the 1970s documentary of the same name about South African music. An excellent introduction to S/A Music. Ladysmith Black Mambazo contributes two really nice tunes (their second selection is a real toe-tapper) acapella. There is a lovely instrumental featuring just guitars and congas and an equally sweet gospel song. But the highlights are the live selections from the S/A counterpart to the Apollo Theater from the documentary. The tune that features the Mahotella Queens will get you hooked even if you don't have a clue of what's being said. You feel it, though. This is hard to find, but WELL worth the effort."
Wonderful achieval footage!

"This was a huge surprise seeing early Mohotlla Queens and Sipho and Johnny (Clegg) in their youthful exhuberance. This is a must for anyone who really loves and wants to understand the uniqueness of South African Music. Follow this with Amandla, perhaps."
