Vusi Mahlasela: “Thula Mama” At TED

One of my favorite singer songwriters from South Africa is Vusi Mahlasela . This is from a performance Vusi did at a TED conference. Vusi dedicates his song, “Thula Mama,” to all women — and especially his grandmother and tells this great story about his grandmother when the police raided her house looking for him during the apartheid years.
