Ngeloi La Me

This song draws on words by Lesotho writer, Kemuel Edward Ntsane (1920-1983) about the homesickness felt by people from Lesotho when they cross the borders of the country,  to seek work, or to go into exile. The Caledon River (Mohokare) is the main boundary between Lesotho and South Africa, witness to the many sorrows of people leaving their homes behind. Moerane makes expressive use of modulations and changes of mood and texture to mirror this poem of nostalgia for home, where 'my angel, my mother' lives.
