Quick Overview

Thulalila Lele is a traditional African song with text translating to: "What have we done to deserve this life and what will we have to say about it when the time comes?" This work is widely performed by Zambia's own Zambian A Cappella Group, and sounds best when accompanied only by simple percussion such as a Djembe drum. Duration: 2:15
