Freedom for Some
Jonas Gwangwa Lyrics


Free my people
Free my people

Kode kube nini
Sikhala sinyamezela
Oh yithi MaAfrika
Oh-oh-oh! Sikhokhele Mandela
Nelson Mandela, we all need you here today
Your children want to touch you
The way they did some time ago
You are the head of the family
The hero of the nation
Welcome home
Meet your people, Mandela

Freedom for some is freedom for none
The whole world united, we fight
Till all are free

Free my people
Free my people

Freedom bells are ringing
From all corners of the land
Black and white marching hand in hand
Prison walls are shaking
Mandela is not breaking
Freedom now
Freedom now for my people
Nothing can ever stop us now
We are on our way
We will, we'll be together soon
In South Africa, we will be free

Freedom for some is freedom for none
The whole world united, will fight
Till all are free

Freedom for some is freedom for none
The whole world united, will fight
Till all are free

We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free

Freedom for some is freedom for none
The whole world united, will fight
Till all are free

We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free
We will be free, we will be free

I listen to this track every single day and I still get the chills....the lyrics, the arrangement, the voices, aahhh!!!! Being South African...I suppose that adds to the emotion, especially having lived through those times. Thanks George, Thanks Jonas.

This music is a beautiful tribute for an exciting movie of the greatest fighters and heroes of South Africa. Thank you for this gift

After I saw the movie, I cried for about 3 hours. One of the best impacted movie ever! Amandla!

I’m still here enthralled with this soundtrack like I was when I first heard it.
Kicking myself even still after all these years as my parents went to the red carpet premier in Leicester Square and asked if I wanted to attend with them and my older brother. Regrettably I said no. How stupid do I feel now? All these brilliant actors and actresses, musicians and I might even have rubbed shoulders with the Attenboroughs!
This film is engrained in my dna forever and having roots in SA brings it a whole lot closer to home. Dad was part of the anti-apartheid movement here in the UK and we spent many a day protesting against their government and companies still investing in SA.
It’s a glorious country made all the more better by everyone being treated equally and democratically.

Fenton opens the song, followed by the great South African trombonist and jazz supremo, JONAS GWANGWA and his talented choir. Gwangwa sings: "The Africans are coming. They are armed with their spears. Take a new step. Leave all your burdens behind. Go to foreign lands and tell the people there about our struggle for freedom. We are fighting for freedom in South Africa."

I’ve got the film and soundtrack c/o iTunes, it’s impressive, Jonas complemented George’s music well, George is multi-skilled, and so versatile.

The Cry Freedom soundtrack is a wonderful, sometime stirring mix if traditional, African pop and Western motifs. I've owned the LP version of it since 1990 and its in mint condition. Some day, I'll digitize it. An equally exciting soundtrack from an Africa-based movie is "No Where in Africa." You can find it here on YouTube. The German film won an American Oscar for best foreign film a vew years back. When traditional and pop African sounds are recruited, magic happens.
