Event for Don Mattera, March 3

Invite from Jo'burg....

Lyrics of our Song

A dedication to Don Mattera’s Azanian Love Song

Like a weeping willow
I drop my soul
Into a pool of fire
Somewhere in a dark sanctuary
I hear the sound of a freedom song:

The child has risen
And walks defiantly
Towards the lion’s lair

Don Mattera-Azanian Love Song
