Here's the latest from Ocha Records imprint, Ocha Mzansi.
Velani means "Show Yourselves"
The lyrics are in Xhosa, and the Xhosa are a people that are deeply rooted in ancestor worship. The lyrics translate to "I speak to them that are of the past, they that visit me in my dreams. Appear and reveal yourself or Show Yourselves"
We have seen 1st hand what this song does on the dancefloor, and trust me, the spirits do show themselves. Enjoy!
Lemon & Herb's "Velani" is currently supported and being beaten into submission by Osunlade and Black Coffee, to name a couple of DJs that we love. Other DJs supporting this moving song include, Culoe de Song, Master Kev, Danny Krivit, Simbad, Atjazz, and more.. see the some of their comments below.
