Practice Mp3

This popular West African folk song will always be associated with the internationally renowned South African singer and civil rights activist Miriam Makeba, who recorded it as long ago as 1960 in New York. The lyrics, which she sang in Xhosa tell of young men fighting with sticks on the bank of a river. By contrast, Stuart Smith’s new English lyrics tell of children at play, who as part of their game sing the praises of the sun, the moon and the stars. In his arrangement, Gwyn Arch has turned this traditional African song into an easy-to-sing choral piece with a typical “African feel”.
