Mosele is a lively, syncopated song based on a traditional source from Lesotho. ‘Mosele’ is a generic Sesotho name for a girl child, normally the youngest in the family, but Moerane’s first granddaughter was called ‘Mosa’, which is close. The traditional lyrics (about a bad hair day) are not very flattering, and so perhaps Moerane was teasing his granddaughter with this song.
