The music, the harmony of the people seared in my memory
28 February 2016 | by adolfoaSee all my reviews

I remember the choirs harmony blew my mind, not professional singers, just folkloric music, I had never heard such sounds and it gave me an appreciation of that music ant that culture.

It was the mid 1960's, my teenage pals and I skipped school, went to the movies instead, Dingaka was playing, loved it, I have been looking for a copy for decades, I can't find it on Netflixs, would love to see it again, the music was just hunting, the unfairness of the story, If one knows where to rent, borrow, I recommend it, please let one know.

I wish I could remember more details about it, it was 50 years ago, but I do remember how the tribe's men songs were such a surprise musically, where the notes would go next, the baritone sounds and harmonies were like nothing I had heard before.
