What a great idea. Please consider doing this again sometime in the future.
Today we are featuring something a little different… 15 songs that take you to Africa. Songs that remind us of Africa and South Africa’s heritage, of films and of our dreams. Each one carries a positive message and we’ve kept the song choices groovy to ensure that you’ll want to sing along.
Most of the songs are sung by famous artists and you may know each one, even so, give it a listen and see what feelings the song stirs in you. For those that you don’t know, listen and let us know if you like it, let us know your favourites and please let us know which songs you would like us to add to this list…
This morning we had our first rains at Londolozi after a long dry spell – a good reason to want to sing!
