As Buskaid is an educational organisation, the CDs it produces demonstrate very
clearly the development of the Ensemble from year to year. It is fascinating to
hear the difference between those recordings made in 1998 and 2000 and those of
the later live performances.
Recorded in Johannesburg in April 2000, this CD is a collection of
mostly traditional dance music from around the world - English, Irish,
Gypsy American Bluegrass and our very own African Kwela, arranged
by the Buskaid players themselves.
Pachelbelís Canon and Albinoniís Adagio are also included on this CD
and provide the listener with not only a wonderful insight into the playersí
stylistic flair but also that rich African sound unique to Buskaid.
