What is "South African Music" to you?

The Rainbow Nation - apart from Apartheid

The National Anthem of South Africa

Nkosi sikele li’Africa

Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw’ uphondo lwayo,
Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.

Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa la matshwenyeho,
O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso,
Setjhaba sa South Afrika – South Afrika.

Uit die blou van onse hemel,
Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
Waar die kranse antwoord gee,

Sounds the call to come together,
And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom,
In South Africa our land.

Lord, bless Africa

Lord bless Africa
Rise high her glory,
Listen also to our prayers,
Lord bless us, we are its family.

Lord protect our nation,
  Stop wars and sufferings,
Protect it, protect our nation,
The nation of South Afrika – South Afrika.

Ringing out from our blue heavens,
From the depths of our seas,
Our everlasting mountains,
Where the echoing crags resound!

Sounds the call to come together,
And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom,
In South Africa our land.
