Five Kenyan songs arranged for treble voices in three parts (SSA) a cappella.

From the composer:
In the summer of 1988, I traveled to Kenya with the Yale-Fulbright/Hays Group Projects Aboard program. In July and August of 1992, I returned to Kenya with support from a Connecticut Commission on the Arts Individual Artist Award. Both of these trips were exhilarating. I visited many primary schools and with each visit the children sang. They sang songs of welcome, and songs of farewell. They performed game songs with solo singing and group response. All of these performances were a cappella with an occasional drum or shaker accompaniment. The songs were also accompanied by dancing and improvised movement. I audio taped all of these impromptu concerts. Kenya Melodies is an arrangement of five songs from the tapes.

Sisi Watoto tu wakenya Nyairo Mama Wire Munene Kanu ni umoja


"I sang it for an Area All State concert in 2003 and it was soo much fun!! it's really great for choruses!! "

"I'd recommend this to any choir. It's a lot of fun to sing--by far the best song I've ever sung in chorus. Years after, you can still remember it. Also, I think it's best taught by call and response, as that's how I learned it, and it helps keep mispronunciation of the Swahili to a minimum. It's too bad you can't rate things "Six: Super Awesome with a Side of 'Lets Do That Again!'""
