Joy. A quintet exploration.

As you probably know, black prison inmates in America’s South, hammering and digging along rural roads, came up with chain gang songs. They lifted their voices and their feet, clinking and clanging in percussive harmony.

Black brothers in South Africa did something akin in Apartheid days. Along with their fetters, they also wore massive boots, working in flooded gold mines. American-born Englishman David Bruce was...
