The Zulu title of this popular South African folk hymn translates to We Are Marching. In this clever adaptation, the melody is first presented in all parts, then appears as a round backed by a rock-style bass line. Next comes a key modulation that keeps the excitement rolling into the gospel-style finale. Duration 2:25.
