Asimbonanga (Mandela)

Johnny Clegg & Savuka
Languages: Zulu, English



Asimbonanga
Asimbonang' uMandela thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'ehleli khona

Oh the sea is cold and the sky is grey
Look across the Island into the Bay
We are all islands till comes the day
We cross the burning water

Asimbonanga
Asimbonang' uMandela thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'ehleli khona

A seagull wings across the sea
Broken silence is what I dream
Who has the words to close the distance
Between you and me

Asimbonanga
Asimbonang' uMandela thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'ehleli khona

Steve Biko

Victoria Mxenge

Neil Aggett

Asimbonanga
Asimbonang 'umfowethu thina
Laph'ekhona
Laph'wafela khona
Hey wena
Hey wena nawe
Siyofika nini la' siyakhona
