As the mountains echo with the voices
Of Chimurenga Warriors, the Rusape
Forest contains the music of children,
Mothers and daughters screaming for
The Mbira’s mystical sounds reminding
Us of a past drenched with blood which
Sipped through the soil, and stripped
The land of its wealth, caves contain
The struggle songs that areepeated at
Night, as if there is a choir of dead
Warriors which sing like angels.
Mbuya Nehanda and Sekuru Kaguvi
Singing duets for the country’s pain,
The hosho’s harmony soothing and
Rubbing the wounds of the people
Who have to mourn their loved ones,
Oh the pain is unbearable.
As the camp fires are created and
Brightened the sky, stars representing
Stage lights an 1980 being the theme
For the concert of liberation.
