Lolo mtwanami (Hush, my child)
This traditional Swazi lullaby is from Usutu Forest, Mbabane, Swaziland. The baby, who was suckling from its mother while she sang, began to cry. The mother, Justina Shabangu, sings this song with a full voice, calming the baby with the repetitive sound of the verses.
