Muziki Vuma means "music in the air" in Swahili, and the text of this infectious, cross-cultural piece is a combination of English and Swahili. It's rhythmic, with an African pulse, and the melodies reflect its African heritage. Rhythm instruments can be easily added, or use the African feel of the SoundTrax CD. Great for choirs of all ages; one of the three editions will be perfect for your group. A fun-to-sing, easy-to-learn cross-cultural piece for your general concerts. Included on Sally's "In the Spotlight!" Video, #19803.
Recorded Acc. Available.
