Shosholoza is a song form known as call & response. After the initial measure, the call and response will coincide every 4th measure. Listen to the harmony created when sung together! Shosholoza began as a folk song for the gold and diamond miners traveling back and forth between Zimbabwe and South Africa.
The song features a repeating rhythmic pattern known as ostinato that is notated on the bottom of each page. At the final measure, we jump backwards using D.S. (dal segno) al fine.
