Kuwa Na Krismasi Njema ((African Christmas Greeting)). Composed by Marti Lunn Lantz and Lois Brownsey. For Choral (2-Part). Shawnee Press. African Christmas Greeting. Choral. 12 pages. Shawnee Press #E0626. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35012141).
The Swahili text for “Merry Christmas to you” is delightful in this African setting with creative harmonies, rhythms, and percussion. A strong pulse is established from the beginning with the bass and left hand of the piano accompaniment, moving the music and text to an energetic and full ending. A pronunciation guide and a suggested drum part are included within the choral. It is a wonderful choral to program for your multicultural selection in December. Available separately: 3-part mixed with percussion, 2-part with percussion, StudioTrax CD.
