Shosholoza is a traditional South African work song that originated with the miners and railroad track layers, but later became a song associated with the freedom struggles of apartheid. More recently, the piece has taken on a nationalistic identity, and can even be heard in the stands at football (soccer) and rugby matches. Typical of work songs, the piece utilizes call-and-response with a solo line that can be performed by an individual or a group of singers. Improvised drumming can also be incorporated, and suggested conga rhythms are included.
