AllMusic Review by

Rural South Africa is one of the great African accordion cradles, and this is a nifty compilation of Zulu and Sotho accordion 1930 -- 1965, though it would make it on the quality of this splendidly craggy idiom alone. Lots of variety, too, from neo-traditional to urban-with-country roots with guitar. Good notes. One teeny carp: chronological sequence would have added a sense of the music's growth. (65:22)
