Zulu multi-instrumentalist *Noiseh Khanyile has been incorporating violin and mandolin into both his traditional and township jive performances since the late 60's. He has played with many of the hottest acts in South Africa including the legendary Boyoyo Boys of Johannesburg. This track is from his 1989 disc "The Art of Noise" - recently re-released in 2001 on Globe Style records - this is a Zulu tune that retells the rescue of a young woman from her kidnappers.
