HAHAHAHA! I have discovered something!
Follow this link. Click on the song Thula Mama. Sounds like a song for my sister if I’ve ever heard one. She’s Tuula’s mama!
This song makes me happy.

Ah! And that’s in Zulu! I tried to find the lyrics online but can’t find them anywhere :(. If you find them let me know…
I found out it is actually a traditional lullaby sung in the Xhosa language. It means “Hush Mother”…
So I guess Thula means Hush but also like “be peaceful.”
And we listened to it with Tuula on my lap and she fell asleep. 🙂
