"I. Jambo" is the first movement of a larger composition entitled Ngoma za Kenya. Written while composer Paul Basler studied in Kenya, the piece reflects the joyous optimism of the country's people. It is riddled with energetic rhythms, harmonies, and melodies from the indigenous music of Kenya. Bands will have a great time playing this piece!
