"Shosholoza" is a Ndebele folk song that originated in what is now Zimbabwe but was popularised in South Africa. It was sung by Ndebele all-male migrant workers that were working in the South African mines in a call and response style. The song is so popular in South African culture that it is often referred to as South Africa's second national anthem.

Performed by the South African a cappella group Overtone, recorded for director Clint Eastwood's movie Invictus (2009)
