"Shosholoza"
Added on 1/1/2017
This is a short video produced and edited by Dara Sanandaji in South Africa in 2014. "Shosholoza" is a traditional miner's song, originally sung by groups of men from the Ndebele ethnic group who traveled by steam train from their homes in Zimbabwe to work in South Africa's diamond and gold mines. It is now used to convey messages of hope and solidarity in times of hardship and distress. The high school students shown in this video continue to be an inspiration to Dara to this day.
