The Lion King... on a plane
If there is one musical that we wish would be brought here in the country, that would The Lion King. I guess that would not be that impossible a wish anyway as recent years have given us access to Mamma Mia, The Phantom of the Opera and Wicked.
We have seen the Disneyland version of this musical and that was good too but I heard that the original is quite epic! Check out the Australian cast singing The Circle of Life on their flight back to Sydney after a successful season launch in Brisbane.
By the way, I found a translation of what I first thought was just random chanting in the beginning of the song. Turns out, it isn't so random after all.
Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba [Here comes a lion, Father] Sithi uhm ingonyama [Oh yes, it's a lion]
Nants ingonyama bagithi baba Sithi uhhmm ingonyama Ingonyama Siyo Nqoba [We're going to conquer]
Ingonyama Ingonyama nengw' enamabala [A lion and a leopard come to this open place]
