Jambo, Karibu Kwa Afrika by Patsy Ford Simms. Choir Secular. 2-Part Choir. Choral Octavo. Alfred Archive Edition. Multicultural. Choral Octavo. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.20108).
"Hello, welcome to Africa." Patsy Simms has crafted the piece in the traditional African style with brief joyous solos (or small groups) followed by responses from the choir. Much of the text is in English and the Swahili phrases are easy and fun to sing (pronunciation guide included). It's happy, jubilant, and repetition makes it easy to learn. Don't miss the "world music" SoundTrax CD.
