Looking forward to singing on Tuesday.  I would like to record some of our songs to post on SoundCloud.  This is one I want to record.  If you don't know it yet, this video will teach you your part and you can sing along with the ensemble at the end.  Click here for the pdf file.  The friend who introduced me to this song calls it a "soul charge" and I definitely agree.  The Zulu word Shosholoza mean "Go Forward" and the words literally are about a train moving fast on the mountain.  While the song was originally a call and response sung by workers riding the train to the mines, it has become an unofficial national anthem in South Africa.  To me it is about joy and strength and energy.  Enjoy!
