Shosholoza - Dance Painting

Regular price $2,332.00 Sale

Shosholoza is the song was usually sung to express the hardship of working in the mines. It expresses heartache over the hard work performed in the mines. The word Shosholoza or "tshotsholoza!" means go forward or make way for the next man, in Ndebele. It is used as a term of encouragement and hope for the workers as a sign of solidarity. For me it represents a time growing up in South Africa. It can represent great joy in unity. This is based on the Zulu dancers of Kwazulu Natal. I can feel the energy.
