Zahara is and Afrosoul singer from South Africa. She sings in her native tongue Xhosa and English.

Loliwe - The Train
(Song about the African workers who rode the trains that took them to work in the mines. Many never came back.)

"the train is pushing
here it comes
wipe those tears off, loved one
in Heaven, in the Lord
lives only the holy
if you want to go there, pray"

Ndiza - I'll Come
Chorus translation:
"I will come, I will come back bringing you my heart.
Make it pure."
