Blacking, John. 2002. Domba 1956-1958: A personal record of Venda initiation rites, songs & dances. Includes study guide. VHS tape. (Number 2).

Between 1956 and 1958 John Blacking conducted the fieldwork among the Venda people of the Northern Transvaal, South Africa, on which his later international reputation as an ethnomusicologist was built. The film Domba is one of the products of that engagement with Venda lives, providing a vivid impression of girls' initiation rites as practised in the 1950s that augments and informs Blacking's other Venda texts. Filmed and edited by John Blacking, with voice-over commentary by John Blacking. Includes a study guide by John Bailey and Andrée Grau.
