The Mendi Centenary Project - Musical Tribute

The Mendi Centenary Exhibition opening on the 26th February will feature the Fezeka Choir singing a musical tribute including the tonic sol-fa "Ama-gora e-Mendi" by A.M. Jonas, and Tiyo Soga's "Lizalis'indiga lakho", which was reported by S.E.K. Mqhayi to have been sung by the Reverend Isaac Wauchope during the sinking of the Mendi. Soga's hymn was originally composed as a response to the tragedy of the Cattle Killing, 1856-7.
