Jc Crew

There are three elements at the heart of the melodies of JC Crew: Jehovah God, Lesotho and nature! From our inception in 2004, we have been particularly intrigued by the dynamics and richness of Sesotho as a language and a way of life that has been forsaken in pursuit of Western traditions. In our pursuit of Bosotho, we have reconciled that our belief and spirituality dates far back and derives its substance from far east. In the dispensation of abundant freedom to worship, we, like Fekisi of Moeti oa Bochabela (by Thomas Mofolo) continue our journey in search of truth and virtue. We believe the message of the Cross is truth! We therefore carry its “burden” and use our music to pass that message. Mohahlaula is a 12 track album full of Sesotho prose expressing the effulgence of the magnificence of God, the One we call Seokamela-batho, Rammoloki, Molala-le-linaleli, Ramonono, Ts’epo-ea-khanya! Taking a tour around Lesotho presents an opportunity to do just that, to witness the melodies and pentatonics of nature presented in Maletsunyane, Maphut’saneng, Maliba-mats’o, Qhoali le Qhoalinyana, Senqu le Senqunyana; the seemingly deliberate and majestic designs of Thabana-li-‘Méle, Thaba Chitja, Thabana Ntlenyana and Thaba Putsoa! The freshness of air as you navigate through the valleys and watery hills, ascending ‘Moteng le Lebelonyana. Whether north or south of the country we see Cheche le Sehala-hala and many other plants that speak a language of music, a praise song to the Maker, the King of kings and it sounds like Meloli ea linonyana, Lesiba; Sekhankula se meketse sehou! It sounds like a 4 step or 6 step beat, something like pata-pata! Afro sounds bo-Marimba kapa Mbira! Forever serenating souls of men like water dripping from mafika a haeso Maphuts’eng. The fresh yet resilient winds of Meleleng, they come with billows and sighs, ho hlasimilla moea oa Bahahlauli! It’s like korotlane mane khotla, lifting the souls of old men, reversing the clock hoba hopotsa the good old days. Ke maseea le maqheku, crying out Abba!
