The central argument of this book is that, ‘to be musical does not necessarily mean that one should have certificate in music’. This succinct and insightful text provides an important introduction to the theoretical and practical aspects of indigenous Pedi musical practice. It offers readers a clear foundation for understanding and a basis for developing knowledge and skills in informal learning of indigenous Pedi music. It is singled out by: 1) its clear and careful integration of both the ‘thinking’ and ‘doing’ elements; 2) its logical and cohesive structure, which takes the reader through the main theories and principles in eight compact chapters, and 3) its lucid exposition of complex topics through varied practice examples. Written by an insider (Pedi) on many levels, this is the ideal text for Arts & Culture students. This book gives the reader structured, practical guidance on how to approach the transmission process of indigenous music in the Pedi community. Overall, the book provides a theoretically informed practical guide rooted in many years’ experience of Pedi indigenous music practice on the part of the music practitioners.
