1. Tshotsholoza
2. Siyahamba
3.Gabi Gabi
The beautiful melodies and rhythms of these wonderful South African Freedom Songs are delightful to perform. The first and last songs can be accompanied with a very simple and subtle stepping movement. All pieces in this suite are also sung a cappella. The text of “Tshotsholoza ” tells the story of a train bringing a man to Zimbabwe. The text for “Siyahamba” is translated as “We are marching in the light of God, ” and the Text of “Gabi Gabi ” is translated as “Come, let us join together and form a movement. ” Your students will love performing these pieces!
