Musique de Tchokwe in Zaïre - rec. Barbara Schmidt-Wrenger

Musique de Tchokwe in Zaïre - No. 11
rec. 1973 by Barbara Schmidt-Wrenger
Tervuren - Réference 6803073 - P.1977

Side A

A1 Tshiyanda 3'25
A2 Tshiela 4'30
A3 Mayenge 3'15
A4 Kalukuta 3'10
A5 Kulenge sa mwata 2'40
A6 Miaso ya jita 2'50
A7 Miaso ya ulo 2'30

Side B

B1 Miaso ya tshisaji 2'20
B2 Miaso ya ndjimba 2'40
B3 Miaso ya ndjimba 4'05

B5 Musheta 2'20
B6 Mahamba 0'55
B7 Mungonge 2'30
B8 Uyanga 2'10
B9 Wali 2'40

I feel that there is little I have to say about this recording as with the other volumes this record comes with a multilingual book of almost 90 pages. I find that this series really is worth a wider circulation and that they are very important documents that most likely even the Tchokwe has no access to themselves.

Nice to see you are posting again.

A long time ago you were running through the "An Anthology Of ...." series then stopped posting with the promise of more to come.

Thank you again for those Anthology Lps but are you still intending to post more of these series?

Hi Bolingo,

thanks for the recent posts. But I can't find any link...

yes, the archives were collected by the metropole, for the advancement of the metropole.

it is great to share these -- knowledge is power but a little bit is a dangerous thing!!

i am looking forward to the opportunity to dig into serious study of these recordings accompanied by extensive documentation.

thank you for sharing with us -- this is a lot of work!!!

Welcome back Herr Bolingo, glad to see that you are ok.

Sorry about the last two premature posts. As they were merely drafts made last summer I had set dates for automatic posting in what I believed to be a very distant future before which I would have gotten ample time to complete them. I was obviously wrong in this assumption as that future is now and I still have had no time to finish them. They will however be updated and completed but I have no time at the moment to unpack the harddisks they are on as I have just gone through a two week long session of mooving house. I hope it clears up soon so I can go back to posting more regularly again and I hope you will have the patience to wait and just enjoy the promise.

thanx for posting links to the more recent indian music posts... is it too much to hope that this LP recorded in the motherland would be similarly graced with a link? really obscure, interesting, important stuff... thanks for your consideration & thanks for all you've done. lots of great sharing & helping us scholars learn more by hearning more...

bolingo69 said...

OK just give me a little more time!bI'll do it but I can not tell you when …

oh, i know you'll do it. thanks for writing me back!

this is an extremely rare disc, within its genre, by the way...

poor, clicky sound on the first few minutes of each side.

having looked for it for years, just hearing it is more than enough.

for me, sometimes, its more about internalizing the ideas encoded in the sounds waves, and never being able to go back...

hi fi is nice, too, of course.


roberth said...

also waiting for this one but you sound very busy. so this isn't pressure just want you to know there is interest

bolingo69 said...
