Hamba Lulu

Jesu Ukukhanya

Si Njay Njay Njay

Weeping (N'Kosi Sikeleli Africa)

Singing ('umculo') is a huge part of the culture and every day life of many African peoples, none more so that in South Africa. 'Hamba Lulu' is a wedding song with a gentle, comforting rhythm. 'Jesu Ukukhanya' has a call-and-response structure where a simple solo line is followed by a choral answer. A joyful exuberant song with an infectious rhythm, 'Si Njay, Njay, Njay' can also be performed a cappella with some optional percussion for greater effect. 'Weeping' is a South African pop song from the band Bright Blue and uses as its chorus the refrain from the Zulu anthem 'N'kosi Sikeleli Africa' ('God Bless Africa').
