Mohapeloa Critical Edition, Volume IV revised 2016

Catalogue no:



Volume IV combines two songbooks in one volume: Khalima-Nosi dating from 1951 and Meluluetsa dating from 1976. The 5 songs in the earlier book give voice to an African cosmopolitan, urban modernity while the 22 songs in the later book are more patriotic in tone and quite lengthy, celebrating the national institutions that emerged after Lesotho’s independence from Britain in 1966. This volume was revised and corrected in 2016.
