Long shot, but I am hoping on of you good people will be able to help. I had Ipi Tombi as Vinyl, and using jiggery-pokery, managed to make a recording on to my computer. Which is great :)

What I always regretted was that I missed seeing it when it was on stage in London. Does anyone know if it is available on DVD? As I say, long shot.....:angel:

Me too. It's very frustrating because there are sites that say they have DVD, but then when I look I can't find anything other than the soundtrack.

You might find it on Amazon. VHS can also be put onto a DVD

I have been searching the net for a while. Its enough to cause brain damage, honestly. If I do a Google search of "Ipi Tombi" DVD or "Ipi Ntombi" DVD, so many sites say they have DVD and when I click on them they b well haven't!!!!

Wayback in the '80's I heard this track on Desert Island Discs. I was unable to get the sound out of my head, I loved it. It took me about 5 years to get the album. I found it in HMV Oxford Street. A few years ago I mentioned it to a friend of mine who comes from Africa and he told me he saw it performed in Africa when he was little. I made him a recording of mine and he had tears in his eyes when I gave it to him. He said he would take great pleasure in listening to it with his brother.

My sons grew up to this (and other) music, it's in them somewhere and I am proud of it.

Bibby - you brought back sooo many memories for me mentioning İpi Tombi - İ too was hooked on it - İ lived in South Africa for a year many moons ago and saw it performed in Johannesburg - approximately 1978 - İ did buy the 7 inch vinyl but that has long gone - now available on Ebay though for under a fiver -
