The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World.

  • Josh Groban Mandela Day 2009- Weeping with Vusi Mahlasela

    6:35

    I knew a man who lived in fear
    It was huge, it was angry,
    It was drawing near.
    Behind his house a secret place
    Was the shadow of the demon
    He could never face.

    He built a wall of steel and flame
    And men with guns to keep it tame
    Then standing back he made it plain
    That the nightmare would never ever rise again
    But the fear and the fire and the guns remain.

    It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow
    He tells the world that it's sleeping
    But as the night came round
    I heard its lonely sound
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping.

    And then one day the neighbours came
    They were curious to know about the smoke and flame
    They stood around outside the wall
    But of course there was nothing to be heard at all
    My friends, he said, We've reached our goal
    The threat is under firm control
    As long as peace and order reign
    I'll be damned if I can see a reason to explain
    Why the fear and the fire and the guns remain.

    It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow
    He tells the world that it's sleeping
    But as the night came round
    I heard its lonely sound
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping.

    Say ah, say ah, say ah
    Say ah, say ah, say ah

    [Ladysmith's solo]

    It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow
    It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow

    It doesn't matter now it's over anyhow
    He tells the world that it's sleeping
    But as the night came round
    I heard its lonely sound
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping
    It wasn't roaring, it was weeping.

    Say ah, say ah, say ah
    Say ah, say ah, say ah [to end]

    Vusi Mahlasela came through Uneven Studio on a snowy afternoon in January. He was on tour with Amos Lee and was nice enough to swing by before heading to the Boulder Theater that night for a sold-out show. It was humbling to be in such close quarters with a true living legend -- many in his native South Africa refer to Vusi simply as the Voice. You might recognize the performance above, Say Africa, as one of the definitive songs of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Enjoy the seven exclusive live tracks below, rife with stories and explanations of how they came to be.
