Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa Critical Edition

Moea Oa Leboea is is one of many songs about the violent affect of nature on drought-ridden Lesotho. The song is addressed to the north wind that brings renewed hope of rain in December, thrashing the Maluti mountains and villages as it comes. The song is sung by the Meadowlands N.G. Kerkkoor (conductor not specified), a recording made by the SABC c1990. This historic recording was re-issued by ACE in 2014 as Track 26 on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa.
