It´s a 1967 song. This taste in music selection makes RP unique.

I saw her in San Francisco shortly before she returned to South Africa to vote for the first time in her life... for Nelson Mandela of course. She was so excited.

And yes, back then they were records.

The teens weren't into it. But the children were. I was 6 years old and I remember it well. Love hearing it again.

Surely not that rare? South Africa has such a rich musical history! I was lucky enough to catch the 'Umoja' show while I was in South Africa, detailing South Africa's history by examining how it's music changed. This song certainly features, although it sounds like they've used instruments in this version to capture the click sound that the Ungosa (sp?) tribe uses as part of their language. Was a fantastic show, fell in love with South African music because of that.

This has such a lovely bossa-nova beat to it - easy to swing one's hips to without ending up in the emergency room.  And I'm still dancing, with the mute on because I cannot listen to the late Israel Kamakawiwo'ole slaughter "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."
