How to sing the South African national anthem
After the embarrassing debacles of South African singers not knowing how to sing the South African national anthem, we decided to make a little video series to help people to learn not only how to pronounce and sing the Xhosa/Zulu and Sotho/Tswana verses, but also what the individual words mean.
Verse 1: isiXhosa/isiZulu
Verse 2: seSotho / seTswana
Sing a long and enjoy! This hymn is a blessing!
“I Really loved today’s choir dittie ! I was so impressed by the ‘choir’ music that I clean forgot to listen to the words ;). My son and I have been struggling with this last part for a long time now ( he is in Gr 2), but now we are getting it, thanks to you!”
