Xhosa folksongs and dance
Cedarville, South Africa
unidentified (singers, female, hand-claps)

A group of Xhosa women and children sing this song. It is difficult to ascertain the exact cultural origin of this song. The title is taken from the lyrics since there is no accompanying written documentation.
