African Blessing (Bwana Awabariki). Composed by Traditional. Arranged by Deborah Baker Monday. For string orchestra (88555) with optional 3rd violin/viola TC (3) and piano. Playground String Orchestra Series. Grade 1.5. Score and set of parts. Duration 1 minute, 55 seconds. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.8104).

In a time of increased multicultural awareness, this setting of a Kenyan folk-song merges a memorable melody and a simple rhythmic motif with excellent results. Everyone shares the lead material, and the final cello/bass statement bringing the key from G to D produces a brilliant conclusion. Duration 1:55.
