Shosholoza (ASB #14)
In Shosholoza we are delighted to present eight traditional songs from South Africa, arranged by Rebecca Berkley for choirs of varying forces. They are written in such a way that they can be adapted to suit your choir’s needs and you are encouraged to experiment with the number of parts and, in some cases, the structure of the performance; Rebecca has provided comprehensive notes to aid pronunciation and performance.
3. Bawo Tico Somandla
4. The click song (Nconcothwane)
6. Senzeni Na
7. Hamba Nathi
