Habari Nzuri (Good News -- Swahili) composed by Sally K. Albrecht and Jay Althouse. Choir Secular. 3-Part Mixed Choir (SAB). Choral Octavo. Choral Designs. Kwanzaa; Multicultural; Secular; Winter. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.21764).
Sally and Jay have done it again with this energized English/Swahili combination. Three simple Swahili phrases, appropriate for general or seasonal use, are sung back and forth with their English equivalents and repeated over the pulsating African accompaniment. An add-on section in the middle climaxes into a restatement of the original chorus with a treble trio added for an unforgettable finish! The optional SoundTrax is authentically African, or add your own rhythm instruments. It's one of those "just-can't-stand-still" songs. Featured on "On with the Show!" video, #21799.
Recorded Acc. Available.
