It is an easy piece to play.<br> <br> <br> <br> "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" appeared first as a hymn in 1897 when it was written by Enoch Sontonga, a teacher a Methodist mission school in Johannesburg. The title is written in a South African indigenous language, Xhosa, and means "Lord Bless Africa". The hymn was written to a tune by the Welsh composer, Joseph Parry, called "Aberystwyth". In 1925 it was adopted as the anthem of the African National Congress, and became a symbol of the anti-apartheid movement. It was also a pan-African liberation anthem, and was later adopted as the national anthem by Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Tanzania after independence (Zimbabwe and Namibia have subsequently adopted new anthems). <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br>
