Andre van der Merwe’s Baba Sone is a strong and moving expression of the injustice that black South Africans were subjected to in pre-democratic South Africa.  Today, the song speaks to the sad reality of poverty and AIDS in Africa, and also to poverty, suffering and dictatorship throughout the world.
