The workers who migrate from Lesotho to South Africa have developed a genre of sung oral poetry that provides an account of what it is to be a migrant. This text discusses Basotho musical literature, taking into account historical conditions, political dynamics and social forces, as well as the styles, artistry and occasions of performance. Complete with transcriptions of full male and female performances, this book develops a theoretical and methodological framework intended to be of interest to anyone seeking to understand the relationship between ethnoaesthetics and text in the context of performance.
