African Jigsaw (Piano Vocal)

Cover photograph Price £16.95

Hunger is not the only problem facing the Third World. African Jigsaw looks at the problem of Urbanisation, its effects on traditional tribal African life and the casualties left in its wake.

Africa's shanty towns are home to the victims of "progress". Many have abandoned their tribal traditions as the land has failed to support them and their families. They are drawn by the material attraction of the cities and arrive with great hopes of work and prosperity.

But many are disappointed and can only eke out a humiliating existence in the shanty towns. For the sad fathers and mothers they leave behind on the land, there is a growing realisation that the old way of life is slowly dying out.

African Jigsaw concerns a problem facing all developing countries and does not pretend the solution is a simple one. But seeing the pieces of the jigsaw may help young and old alike to come to an understanding of the situation and, perhaps, to draw their own conclusions on its rights and wrongs.

The sound samples feature St Augustine's chorister, Lyndsay Regan singing 'Doorway in the Rain' and the whole St Augustine's choir singing 'Shanty Town, all accompanied by The Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Sir Charles Groves in the Royal Festival Hall, London.
