    The Leya people live next to the Victoria Falls, in Zambia. Their name for the falls is Shungu Namutitima - the only true name of this natural wonder! Traditional music is under threat from globalisation. Listen to this timeless music, played by the last old masters - Crispin on the silimba xylophone and Edwin on the kanimba lamellophone.

about

Two old master musicians amongst the Leya people of Zambia – when they die their music will die with them, as the young people just are not interested. Music as an endangered species! This cd has all the music heard in the documentary film ‘Mutanuka and Syasiya’ made by Michael Baird and Engel Mulder, plus other recordings made over the years by Michael Baird of Crispin Mutanuka playing his silimba xylophone and Edwin Syasiya playing his kanimba lamellophone.
