Chao is a modern African dance-song, published by Mohapeloa in his first songbook in 1935. The Morija Training College Male Choir conducted by Bennie Mashologu recorded it for TTBB in December 1936 at the Gallo Studios, Johannesburg. This historic recording was reissued by ACE as Track 3 on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa in 2014.
