  • Bobete, Lesotho

In the rugged mountain kingdom of Lesotho, growing maize and raising sheep sustain the 200 people of Bobete, a small, rural village. The ground is rocky, dry and steep. Farming is a challenge. In winter, as the sun goes down, temperatures can plummet well below freezing. Village houses or rondavels are built of stone block and mud, and the thatched roofs are tightly woven to hold in warmth.  As the sun sets, a villager, just returned from his fields, warms up on his accordion with a traditional, lively Basotho song.

    As a novice accordionist, I related to this lonely man. Crowds do not gather around accordion players, we mostly play for ourselves.
