The words of this rather unfathomable but intriguing work are attributed to Bennett Makalo Khaketla, a leading Lesotho writer and political figure, several of whose poems Moerane set. As with so many of Moerane’s works, no information is available about when Naleli was composed. The slow tempo, dignified, syllabic setting of the words, and simple harmonies seem to lay bare the somewhat mystical message of the text and the sense of remoteness that the words conjure up.
