In the huge continent of Africa, the cradle of the human race, there are hundreds of different languages, hundreds of different instruments, many different types of melody, different types of antiphony (gospel churches call it "answer-back" or "call and response"). South Africa especially likes to sing in rich harmony. Three parts, four parts, five parts, six parts or more. The songs in this collection were selected, compiled and arranged by the great folk singer and musician Pete Seeger and edited by Robert DeCormier for use in schools, churches, community gatherings and homes. Through music and singing, we can experience a world of beauty, vigor, subtlety and rich variety. All a cappella with rehearsal piano.
