We are so happy to bring you a true musical treasure from South Africa! This super-fun song will definitely get you feeling-good. “Emancipate” is Steve Umculo‘s new masterpiece about freeing the mind by letting go. It’s a song about enjoying the journey you are currently on.

The song starts off feeling much like a great reggae song with tasteful horns and upbeat guitars and drums, then when the vocals come in the song feels more like a ska/punk song, and when the chorus comes in the song feels more like a classic singer-songwriter song. Towards the end of the song listeners will experience a towering distorted guitar solo that will blow their minds. The vibe of the song switches frequently, but is done with great musical transitions, and always feels authentic to who the Steve Umculo is.

Listen to the song here and check out the lyrics below:

LYRICS (provided by the artist):

You have begun your journey
With an entity that existentially
Will liberate your mental slavery and move your body

Forget your fears and worries
The rhythm, the groove, the rhyme will make you lose sense of time
T-t-take a look inside and what you’ll find is sublime

Come along, come along, come along
We are young and our time is short
Sing a song, sing a song, sing a-a song
Come undone, come for more

Inkululeko, inkululeko, woah (woa-um)
Inkululeko, inkululeko, wo-o-o-oah
Inkululeko, inkululeko, woah
Emancipate and liberate, let go

Lock into this, keep it moving
With energy that will eventually
Put every little part of us in total ecstasy

Be one with me, take it easy
Our soul’s at liberty, collective autonomy
Feel what it’s like to be free

Inkululeko, inkululeko, woah (woa-um)
Inkululeko, inkululeko, wo-o-o-oah
Inkululeko, inkululeko, woah
Emancipate and liberate, let go

Sing sing sing with me,
We are the ones who are meant to be free
And we will have more

Live life in ecstasy
Live in a world that will feed your craving
To just let go

Come along, come along, come along
We are young and our time is short
Sing a song, sing a song, sing a-a song
Come undone, come for more

Come along, come along, come along
InkululEko
Come along, come along, come along
Inkululeko
Come along, come along, come along
Inkululeko
