Bobobo is a traditional dance of the Ewe people in the Volta Region of Ghana. There are many variations from village to village, and many songs may be used. A village rendition is a lively event and will often last all day or night. The popular worship song "Hakuna Mungu Kama Wewe " from Kenya can be performed in a variety of ways, by adding movement while singing, incorporating percussion instruments into the performance, or as a processional. Opening with a simple unison melody, the song progresses into two parts and finally adds a descant-like 3rd voice part. "Nakutakia Siku Njema! " is accessible for young choirs, and makes fun of common tourist phrases in Swahili, so don't look for a deep meaning in the text! A rhythmic pulse provides lots of fun for the singers and creates an exciting performance! "Duond Akuru" is based on the Kenyan phrase for "the voice of the dove" this composition combines the imagery of the African landscape and its musical essence.
