ILAM

Topical song with mbira dza WaNdau and deze resonator. "See I am crying, mother-in-law.
Poverty, elder brother, alack.
See, Sophiatown is bad, Patisoni
In my distress I think of home
Happiness to you all at Marange."
The singer sings about the conditions in which he finds himself at Sophiatown, near Johannesburg, where he works as a carpenter's assistant. His home, Marange is in the Chipinga District of Southern Rhodesia, about 400 miles north east of Johannesburg.
