Among the Kung San people from the northwestern Kalahari Desert region, music helps a spiritual healer enter into a religious trance. Men and women chant, sing, clap rhythmically and drum; and when the music "heats up" enough to send a healer into the realm between human and spirit worlds, all who attend the dance are healed of their illnesses. Recorded between 1968 and 1972 by American anthropologists. 5.5"l. x 5"h.; 6 tracks
