Karen Zoid and Yvonne Chaka Chaka have recently done this song, written in Venda Shona , what a beautiful language ….what beautiful words.
I had never even heard it spoken until the day I downloaded the song, I actually had to google it. And I have lived here in south africa since I was born. We have such huge talent in the beautiful land.
Karen is amazing at showcasing that. An amazing singer, human.
Ngatingova neyi nyika
Ganda rako raka svibirira
Vhudzi rako raka fanana nerangu
Hukama hunoti batanidza
Newe makore akawanda
Ndinonzwa mwoyo wangu kurwadziwa x2
Varere wakafa musango
Apo mumwe murume aripa dambudziko
Taridza rudo rushoma
When you cry
When you cry
Don’t you cry brother
Don’t you cry sister
I feel it
I feel the cry
Karen Mashed this with the lyrics of linger into it – truly inspired. We are able to do so much more in this country. Love Karen, Love the queen of africa, go ladies and all talented people of south africa.
Taridza rudo rushoma …
