Sizzling with celebratory rhythmic energy, this African folk song loosely translates: "Those that sing have the right to be called the children of God." The only accompanying instruments are hand drum (treble drum), djembe (bass drum), and shaker, which add authentic flavor and opportunities for improvisation. The vocal parts are easily learned due their repetition and call-and-response style.
