"Thula Baba is a lullaby in Xhosa and Zulu and one of my earliest musical memories. It has
been sung to generations of children. The traditions in South African folk music are almost always aural — very little is written down — so we all learn our first songs from our mothers and grandmothers. Xhosa is a true language of song: somebody once wrote that the richness of its vowels, especially the sweeter vowels, is a 'singer's delight'. Thula Baba is full of sweet vowels." Pumeza

'Thula Baba' is taken from Pumeza's debut album for Decca Classics, Voice Of Hope.
