for Tshihwana bow and Voice transcribed from the performance
of Mr Philemon Munyai by Lwei Netshivhale

Tshidimela means ‘a train’ in tshiVhenda
Translation: The sun is rising,
And the train is coming,
It’s coming carrying bread,
The train is coming to fetch me.

Note: The song could possibly mean, “Things will be ok, Joy will come or peace is coming”. The train could be joy/peace. (Lwei Netshivhale, 2019)
