A Love Song from February 1932 and new prompt: A Very Random Challenge ~ Love Is In Da Blog 2022

“Love Is In Da Blog” is a very free challenge. As I wrote in the suggestions on how to take part: you do not need to follow the exact prompt as long as you post something about “love”. I believe, Love is all we need, and so I feel asking a strict following of rules defeats the object.

I make often use of this freedom and it is the same today. When researching music of 1932 I stumbled over a famous African musician who was born in March 1932. Her name is Miriam Makeba and she recorded a haunting song of love for the freedom fighters in South Africa on an album with Harry Belafonte.

The song is called “Nongqongqo” and as far as I could find out is in the language of the Xhosa people. You can find a translation of the song in this post by Victor Jara. It is further down in the post but the whole post is worth reading.

Please enjoy today’s beautiful song:
