Nganibonge Amakentani (Please praise the Kentani people)

The girl who leads this mtshotsho dance song, Thombi Fegetwai, is a born singer of Gcaleka type songs for her contemporaries. The people of Idutywa District are, in fact, the Gcaleka tribe whose center is in the Kentani District about 50 miles away. The dancers add the guttural roaring sound (similar to eefing in North America).
