Video: Happiness in Lesotho

Aparna Jayaraman Lesotho

In Lesotho it may be apparent that there are hardships, however, it is also very apparent how much everyone loves music.

This video was created as part of the Peace Corps Week Video Challenge "Highlighting Happiness," in which Peace Corps Volunteers captured examples of happiness in the host communities where they lived and worked. The video captures the joy of song and dance in Lesotho. The culture of traditional songs is so ingrained in the Basotho that total strangers come together and bond over their mutual love of music.
