Sekolo Se Koetsoe(School's Out)
Sekolo Se Koetsoe starts out in like a jaunty little operetta chorus in the style of a gavotte, and seems to be about the excitement of the last day of school before the holidays. Gradually it hints at leaving school forever, and going out into the world, as the imagery moves from the local to the global and from close to home to far away. The song is a metaphor for the experiences of life in all its complexity, and the music matches this journey of discovery as it unfolds, without ever losing its charm.
