Also written for 2-part treble, this SATB arrangement is written in the world music style and is accessible for all level choirs. The text which is in both Swahili and English, is about standing tall on the earth, not with anger or aggression, but with hope, strength, acceptance, and a positive spirit. The voices along with hand claps, stomps, Djembe, shaker and piano all combine for an exciting world music presentation. Duration: ca. 3:00.
Performed by Young People's Chorus of NYC Prelude division, Sophia Miller, conductor.
