(Educational Piano Solo). Introduce piano students to the beautiful traditional music of South Africa with these 24 folk songs arranged for piano solo. During apartheid the music of the country's various cultures and groups (Afrikaans, amaNdebele, amaXhosa, amaZulu, Bapedi, Basotho, Batswana, Cape Malay, emaSwati, Vatsonga) developed separately, and the authors felt it long overdue to bring these contrasting musical traditions together. Titles include: The Axe Cuts the Thorn Tree * The Crowing of the Rooster * The Doves Above * God Bless Africa (Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika) * Here Comes the Alibama * I Have a Sweetheart * Jan Pierewiet * Mama, Who Is This? * Our Dearest Mothers * Sugar Bush * They Say There's a Man in the Moon, and more!
Notes on the folk songs
They say there's a man in the moon
Mom did not write this letter!
Sarie Marais
I have a sweetheart in Durban
Mama, who is this?
Jan Pierewiet
The axe cuts the thorn tree
What have we done?
Hope, don't leave me
Delilah, my wife, see my strength
The doves above
Here comes the Alibama
Our dearest mothers
Sugar bush
I am in charge, it will be known
Go forward
The day we pound earth
The clouds, they thunder
The crowing of the rooster
Come out of your cave, Ncofula
Hey, there they are
National Anthems
