Molelekeng (2001 recording)


Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa Critical Edition

The score of Molelekeng (this is a girl’s name) was published in 1951 and it has always been one of Mohapeloa’s most popular songs. Here it is sung at a Massed Choir Festival although no choir or conductor details are given by the SABC, who recorded the live performance in 2001 at a ‘new South Africa’ nation-building event. This historic recording was re-issued by ACE in 2014 as the final track, Track 31, on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa.
