Lifela tsa litsamaea-naha (songs of travelers through the landscape) is a modern oral literary genre brought forth by Basotho migrant workers to be performed on bus, train or while walking. Those men going to the mines deal with their fears and anguish about the poverty they are leaving behind through oral performance in which they praise their own strengths, history and hopes. Lifela (pronounced [difela]) is based on the older praise songs of warriors and kings. Lifela is compared by M.I.P Mokitimi to the folk-ballads of miners in Britain: “They are songs of toil, anthems of the industrial age.” Lifela tsa litsamaea-naha poetry: A literary Analysis (p.1)
