Rycroft asks Magogo if this dance is an 'ingumbu', the meaning of this word is not clear. Princess Magogo explains that the ingumbu is used at weddings during the time of ukugqumushela competitive dance songs between the bride's and the bridegroom's parties. Very good quality recording. This is recorded in stereo.
