The Ian Campbell group recorded this in the 60s (they got it phonetically from a Zulu dance troupe they toured with at the time), and it's been perforemd recently in the UK by a band whose name I'm ashamed to say I can't quite remember. Anyone know the words?

Oh Wow! This is the song that Black Umfolozi taught at their workshop at Towersey a few years ago. The Arts Centre tent was heaving with people. They taught us the song - which was fine. Then they taught us the dance - which was also manageable. But beggared if I could put the two together at the same time. Brings back happy memories. I remember it having something to do with the train, & we had to sing it like a train speeding up & slowing down or something.

This song was in a popular movie a few years back set in Africa -- was it Out of Africa? The Gods Must Be Crazy? Can't quite recall...and also recorded by a DC-based group called Clam Chowder in a very nice five-part harmony version.

Hope this helps...

Is this the same song Pete Seeger recorded on his We Shall Overcome tour back in 63? He spelled it "Tshotsholosa" and you might try a search for that.

Try the spelling Shosholoza in the Digatrad box and you will find lyrics for this. Not necessarily as used by Ian Campbell, but there are definitely a couple of sets of words there. A great song!

I beat you to it, Desred! Trouble with the song is I've never been able to match the words to the tune. The Campbells learned it parrot-fashion, so their rendering is a little too confusing to be a good guide. I was lucky enough to meet three South African women a few months back, who had the words and tune with them, and sang it for us, harmonies and all -- wonderful stuff! -- but even with the book, I couldn't follow it very well.

WhatI really need is two or three other singers ...

a transcription is given on this thread using just two chords E and B7 (so you could also use C and G7 or G and D7 or D and A7)

The thread is under alternative Bantu name "Somagwaza" and the first post has chords.
