Intsimbi ka Ntsikana (Ntsikana's bells and Ntsikana's song)

Selborne T. Bokwe leads this Xhosa song, joined by the Zwelitsha Choral Society Society of Kingwilliamstown District, South Africa. In the 1700s, Ntsikana, the first Xhosa Christian, chanted the song regularly as he called people together for morning prayer. The song is said to be set to an African tune.
