  • THE ZULU WARRIOR by Josef Marais, recorded in 1946 South African Folk Song

    2:25

    Josef Marais sings South African traditional folk ballads and original songs. This is one of fifteen tunes from an early album set of 78 rpm records on the DECCA label, released in 1946. This is his third album, but his first teamed with Miranda. She sings in only three of the fifteen tunes presented in this album. Wasn't long before they married and went on to perform before sold out audiences for the next 30 years.

    These are pretty much the original cuts of these songs, though many were re-recorded in the 1950s and 1960s with large orchestras. These earlier recordings are hard to find and have the charm these songs are suppose to have, in my humble opinion.

  • Marais & Miranda -- A Rose Fell Down from Heaven

    2:53

    Marais & Miranda
    Josef Marais y Miranda fueron cantantes de baladas. Nativos de Sudáfrica inmigraron a EE.UU., y se reunieron durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, mientras trabajaban en la Oficina de Información de Guerra.

    Unieron sus talentos musicales, se enamoraron, y construyeron una sociedad conyugal y musical. Se presentaron por primera vez ante los públicos más especializados que asistían a los clubes de música folk en Nueva York , como el Village Vanguard.
    Sin embargo, su popularidad creció rápidamente, no sólo en los EE.UU. sino en todo el mundo, y dio lugar a un público fiel que ha persistido desde 1945 hasta el presente.

    Su repertorio abarca una ecléctica selección de baladas folk, canciones de arte, música indígena, y composiciones originales, cantadas en el idioma original así como adaptaciones inglesas con los arreglos de Josef.

    Ya fuera una adaptación o una canción original su manera de interpretar era única con su estilo completamente propio. Sus voces se mezclan con maestría con la guitarra de Joséf mientras que Miranda a menudo proporciona acompañamiento rítmico con instrumentos indígenas.
    Juntos, infaliblemente expresaron su alegría por la música y su entusiasmo por vivir.

  • 831. Marching to Pretoria

    1:28

    This Afrikaans song from the Boer war was translated into English by Josef Marais of the duo, Marais and Miranda.

    Josef Marais writes in their collection World Folk Songs (1964):

    In 1939 I introduced this song to American radio audiences over NBC's Blue Network. Pretoria, of course, was the important objective of the British during the Boer War of 1901, the last of the so-called gentlemen's wars. As both sides sang it, there was no recognizable set way of performance. I wrote English verses and a definitive musical adaptation which, to my delight, has captured the enthusiasm of school and college students across the U.S.A.

    I first heard this sung by The Weavers.

    Lyrics and chords of this song can be found here:
