Fredeline (from South Africa) recommends three songs for South Africa's most beautiful music:
1) Nkosi Sikeleli'i Afrika (God Bless Africa) "which is the National Anthem of Africa sung at an event in Zimbabwe in the 80's.
2) Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika--"the new national anthem of South Africa where they linked together Nkosi Sikeli'i together with the Afrikaans and English version of the previous national anthem under white regime. The original version is beautiful because it is sung in a slow rhythm like the prayer it is."
3)Kinders van die Wind (Children of the Wind). "One of the best known and best loved Afrikaans songs ever. Sung by Laurika Rauch."
4)Tussen Treine(Between Trains). "A Personal favourite."
DSM note: These are all beautiful songs. More nominations for South African music are welcome.
