An arrangement of the national anthem of Botswana (''Our Land" or "Blessed be this Noble Land") for String Orchestra.
"Fatshe leno la rona" (meaning "Our Land" or "Blessed be this Noble Land" in Tswana) is the national anthem of the Republic of Botswana. The music was composed by Kgalemang Tumediso Motsete, who also authored the song's lyrics. It was adopted when the country became independent in 1966.
From the late 19th-century until the height of decolonisation during the 1960s, Bechuanaland (as it was then known) was a protectorate of the United Kingdom within its colonial empire. In the run up to independence, proposals for the national symbols for the future country were made. Although the flag and the coat of arms were chosen in a rather straightforward manner, the selection of the national anthem became a source of contention. Despite its popularity, "Fatshe leno la rona" was reportedly not the frontrunner because its composer.
