Ubuntu is a South African concept meaning that "a person is a person through other people." Is not a choir a community of singers, all blending our unique voices together to create something better than we are by ourselves? Set in an energetic call-and-response style, the infectious melody provides a great vehicle to teach syncopation and themes of unity.
