About: Beautiful World (CD Elemotho)

The album ‘Beautiful World’ contains two traditional Namibian songs: ‘Sediegi’, a Setswana word for ‘don’t get side-tracked!’, is Elemotho’s arrangement of a traditional Namibian choral funeral song in which he pays homage to those he has loved and lost. The other traditional Setswana song on the album is ‘Kuruman’, co-arranged with the help of the Makgona Ngwao Cultural Group Choir, known for their commitment to preserving Setswana songs and dance. While Kuruman is a town in South Africa’s Northern Cape Province, it is also a well-known traditional song from Namibia, Botswana and South Africa about the dangers of crossing the Kalahari. ‘Beautiful World’ opens with ‘Ga lo itse’ – ‘We don't know’, a poem written by Elemotho and recited by Naita Hishoono to a backdrop of mbira, acoustic guitar and chanting. The title track ‘Beautiful World’, sung in both English and Setswana, urges political optimism and change and is, in Elemotho’s own words, “a soundtrack of hope, optimism, freedom and positivity in a world that is slowly leaning towards cynicism and negativity”. ‘Black Man’, a provocative, hard-hitting chant in which Elemotho comments on the responsibilities facing his African brothers since Namibian Independence in 1990. ‘Beggars & Superstars’ touches on mortality “because no matter who you are, a beggar or a superstar, we are all here today and then gone tomorrow”. A large part of Elemotho’s own beautiful world is his family; ‘Pau’ is dedicated to Elemotho’s son and features Samuel Batola singing a Central African ode to peace in Lingala. Elemotho produced ‘Beautiful World’ with both Namibian musicians and international artists.
