Busuku Obuhle is the translation in Zulu of the Christmas classic “Silent Night”.


Sung here by 500 African School Children recorded during service at St. Charles Church at Victory Park on 30th November 1971, in Johannesburg, South Africa. In collaboration with the Mission Schools Feeding Wellfare Organisation of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, 500 African children singing to the glory of God and for their and other children’s suppers.

 “Busuku Obuhle (Silent Night)” is also the mood at Soul Safari for a peaceful Yuletide 2014.

At the same time I would like to send my best wishes for the New Year 2014 to all readers of this blog.

May all your dreams and wishes come true. Let peace reign!
