“Hlobisa” by Taraz, Nthabiseng & Page

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Johannesburg, South Africa with Taraz Rawhani, Nthabiseng Mafoko-Matabane and Page Masuku who sing “Hlobisa” in Zulu, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

You can also download the audio version of this song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page here:


This song was filmed and recorded in Johannesburg, South Africa, September 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:

“O Nkulunkulu, Nkulunkulu wami! Hlobisa ikhanda lami ngomqhele, wobulingisa nenhlafuno yami ngemvunulo yobuqotho. Wena, ngeqiniso unguMnini wazo zonke izipho namasasasa.”

Translation from Zulu into English:

“O God, my God! Attire mine head with the crown of justice, and my temple with the ornament of equity. Thou, verily, art the Possessor of all gifts and bounties.”



Repeat: C F Gadd4 F

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
