There are so many wonderful songs celebrating mothers. And many people like to consider Mother’s Day the same type of holiday as Earth Day – a concept that should be honored daily and not just one particular day each year.
A while ago I recorded one of my favorite songs about mothers. It’s called “Here Come Our Mothers, Bringing Us Presents” and it comes from the Zulu tradition of South Africa. I learned the song and the story from a wonderful traditional group of singers from South Africa called Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Ladysmith Black Mambazo was formed in 1960 and has been creating beautiful vocal music with South African roots for almost 5 decades! You can listen to a short sample in the audio player below.
