Another hidden gem I found in my old Spotlight on Music books. I have been looking for more African music as my school population changes and I'm so happy I found this one
This is a great song to teach call and response and a nice way to ease into part singing. There are opportunities for solo singing as well
I have heard this song sung in a continuous echo on the chorus and also with the echo coming in at the end as a coda. There are a lot of creative options to incorporate into this song. If you have access to the Spotlight accompaniments the accompaniment music to this song is very beautiful. Check back for updates on this piece for extra slides that include accompaniments for drums and unpitched percussion.
