Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa Critical Edition

Qeu, Qeu, Majoana is a game song about two brothers playing with pebbles, a reminder that games (lipapali) are an important part of life in Lesotho. Mohapeloa published the score in 1935. Nomathiya High School Choir sings the song on a recording made by the SABC in 1984 (conductor not specified). This historic recording was re-issued by ACE in 2014 as Track 25 on the CD African Choral Legacy: Historic Recordings of Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa.
