South African National Anthem: Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrica

This video has handy subtitles and translations for you to learn. as you may be asked to sing this upon entering at customs. 🙂 (Without the helpful Casiotone accompaniment) Since we also intend winning the 2010 world cup, you may as well get used to the song now.

The new South African anthem combines the old/pre-democratic anthem , Die Stem (The Call) and Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrica (Lord bless Africa) I don’t know any other country that has a “double play” anthem. For more info on our national song see here.
