Rycroft, David, 1924-1997
Rycroft announces that this is the Shembe warriors in the final dancing scene of the film. Then he says 'down down … up down..' He seems to be describing the actions of the dancers on the film. One can here the sound of a 16mm film running. It is not clear which film he is referring to, nor is this narration useful without referring to the audio-visual film at hand.
