About the Work

Performed for many generations, Tshotsholoza is often referred as the "unofficial" anthem of South
Africa. This song of freedom was sung by the ancient miners who.toiled in the South African diamond
and gold mines, and by those celebrating Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Furthermore, it was
included in the soundtrack from the Oscar-nominated movie "Invictus," and most recently, it served as
South Africa's 'battle-call' at the 2010 World Cup. With this in mind, Tshotsholoza should be performed
with immense feeling; yet, should also convey a sense of hope. The work can be performed very
effectively as a processional by utilizing a "step right, touch left; step left, touch right" pattern. Included
in the score are suggested rhythmic patterns for the congas and djembe. Encourage your drummers to
be creative; however, they must always keep a steady pulse.

This edition is an adaptation of the 2005 TTBB version. The text is a mixture of the Zulu and Ndebele
dialects and basically means: "Go forward, go forward on those mountains; the train is coming from South
Africa. You are running away on those mountains; the train is coming from South Africa." A pronunciation
guide is as follows:

Tshotsholoza = SHOH-shoh-Ioh-zah (silent "t")


Ku lezontaba = Koo leh-zohn- TAH-bah
Stimela siphum'e South Afrika =
STEE-meh-Iah (close to "rn") see-POO-meh South AH-free-kah
Wen' uyabalekah =
WHEN-you yah-bah-LEH-gah ("k" pronounced like "g" as in gun)
