Singing South African Music in America

  • We met up to remember our expat family member Femi. He passed on December 2nd. Though we gathered to pay tribute to him and to console our sister, we found time to celebrate his life as well. If you would like to donate to his funeral fund, please follow this link:
    One of the hardest things about being an expat is when tragedy strikes and we lose one of our members. Because we are so far from home, our expenses tend to be much higher than those live in their own countries.
    In Xhosa and Zulu culture we have a saying: Kuyahlekwa noba kubhujiwe (We can laugh even if we are mourning. That is true because as families and loved one we get an opportunity to gather and celebrate the life of the departed. So, please understand this video from that perspective. We sang some Xhosa and some Zulu songs that we grew up with. We had already forgotten some of the words.
    Xhosa and Zulu languages are very similar, so we usually have same songs. Xhosa and Zulu cultures are very similar also.
