Malayisha II (Hold the sun, so that it sets)

Dancing songs such as this mtshotsho were the fashion in 1957, among Gcaleka young people. They are simple and easy to follow and each singer can add his own variations. The dancers add the guttural roaring sound (similar to eefing in North America). These Gcaleka are from Old Idutywa District, South Africa.
