    This is a tape of children's songs. There is a mixture of Zulu, Xhosa and Swazi songs. This is a recording of children singing umlolozelo (plural imilolozelo) children’s song with clapping. There is little written documentation accompanying this recording, which has made it difficult to determine the original title of this song. Therefore the title provided has been taken from the lyrics.
