Nelson Mandela, Born in the Land of the Sun

A South African struggle song from the 1980s that was re-recorded to be offered as a tribute to Tata Mandela on his ninetieth birthday by Raakwys. It is a song that touches the deepest sinews of the heart. Lest we forget!

This version of the song features the soulful voice of rising South African diva, Melanie Scholtz, and SA struggle and contemporary musician and great, Robbie Jansen. Lyrics by Randolph Hartzenberg & Nick Carter; music by Akhbar Khan, Nick Carter & Neo Muyanga. Track recorded in Cape Town, mixed at pureMIX Studios in NYC and mastered by Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering. Video edited by Ian Henderson.
