ILAM

Praise song with Kipukandet 5 string lyre (5 or 6 string pentatonic lyre used by Nandi tribe in Kenya, also known as Kibugantet and Chepkong.) This lyre is strummed like a guitar with the right hand, the left hand stopping the five strings, like the Bongwe zither of Nyasaland. This gave 2 chords. Notes 1, 3 and 5 and notes 2 and 4. One string, they said, was missing, the lower octave of number 1. The scale was: 308,256,232,206,180, (154) vs. The Nandi, like the Kipsigis, their relatives, are given to singing praise songs about people and places familiar to them and beloved by all. This is an example of such a song in which people, places and chiefs all come in for approbation and appreciation.

Ballantine

'Go well Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) We Umkhonto cadres are prepared to kill the Boers'.
This song was sung during the Zimbabwe campaign of 1967-8 when an Umkhonto unit ('Luthuli's detachment') alongside a ZAPU unit fought racist troops and inflicted heavy casualties.

narrator: The armed struggle will take root in South Africa soil!
The enemy's strength is not underestimated but neither is he invincible! The example of Algeria, Vietnam, Mozambique and Angola have shown the possibilities of defeating powerful military regimes. What counts is the determination to struggle of a united and armed people until final victory is secured.
Our song says that the sound of gunfire is already being heard. Vorster and Kruger will be shot down. (From flatinternational.org)
