dc.description.abstract The tribes that fall under the Northern Sotho or Pedi language group are found in the area more or less bounded by Middelburg, Pilgrims Rest, Malopene, the Blaauwberg and Hamanskraal . No print can adequately describe the vital panorama of Pedi life. In surveying the musical practices of the Pedi I soon realised that their music was not an isolated entity but an integral unit of their whole pattern of living, both socially and ceremonially. It is from this essentially ' alive' standpoint, rather than as a scientific analysis of scale systems, etc., that I approached the subject of Pedi music. [Abbreviated Abstract.
