Hot Water's new track "Springbok Amandla" will feature in the South Africa vs All Blacks rugby test match on Saturday 25 July 2015. Says Donovan: "In 1995 I was sitting in a little turquoise room in the middle of India feeling very emotional... The Springboks had just won the Rugby World Cup... It was so much more than a sports victory for South Africa, it was the symbolic unification of a nation. I have been inspired to create this warcry (represented by the image of Nelson Mandela in his Springbok rugby jersey) as a means to continue this journey."
