Baha’i Blog 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 Durban, South Africa with Solomzi Skiti singing “Ndodana Yoqobo (O Son of Being)” in Zulu and in English, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Durban, South Africa, in November 2018.

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

O Ndodana yoQobo!
