“Lalela Zulu” 100 Zulu Lyrics.


The appearance of this small book of lyrics marks the opening of a new chapter in African literature.It is not only the first publication of the recently formed African Music Society,but it heralds the beginning of a series of authoritative works on the artistic side of African life which will reveal the African to himself as much as to the world outside his domain,a world which has intruded into his scallop-shell to alter and destroy but rarely to look,learn and listen.
