Global Voices

A Lion's Trail

Episode Guide »
In the 1920s, Zulu singer Solomon Linda composed "Mbube," a hit melody in his native South Africa. Decades later, it skyrocketed to the top of the international pop charts as "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." This program follows the beloved song's rocky history, from South Africa to Brooklyn and back, asking why Linda died penniless - while American artists made millions from his music.
