Ho Tho’le Tsoe NTTC

(In Praise of the National Teachers’ Training College)




Catalogue No:


The date 1981 is approximate, but the work is from Mohapeloa's last years. It sings the praises of an institution that was only founded in 1975, and which he taught at after his retirement, and is a rewrite of a much earlier song, The Gay Night Birds (JPM077, 1947), in which he praised a vocal jazz group of that name. Mohapeloa's new version draws on the widespread practice of controlled grass burning to encourage new growth once the Spring rains begin, as a metaphor for the renewal education brings to Lesotho.
