Alexander L'Estrange : Songs of a Rainbow Nation : SAB : Songbook : 9780571523382 : 12-0571523382

Alexander L'Estrange : Songs of a Rainbow Nation

Singing ('umculo') is a huge part of the culture and every day life of many African peoples, none more so that in South Africa. 'Hamba Lulu' is a wedding song with a gentle, comforting rhythm. 'Jesu Ukukhanya' has a call-and-response structure where a simple solo line is followed by a choral answer. A joyful exuberant song with an infectious rhythm, 'Si Njay, Njay, Njay' can also be performed a cappella with some optional percussion for greater effect. 'Weeping' is a South African pop song from the band Bright Blue and uses as its chorus the refrain from the Zulu anthem 'N'kosi Sikeleli Africa' ('God Bless Africa').

Songlist: Hamba Lulu, Jesu Ukukhanya, Si Njay Njay Njay, Weeping (N'Kosi Sikeleli Africa)

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.

Various Arrangers : The Folk Rhythm - South African Folk, Church and Protest Songs

The result of months of collaborative work between Patty Cuyler (Village Harmony) and Matlaka Bopape (Polokwane Choral Society), The Folk Rhythm, Volume I is a choral director's dream. 16 rich, arresting songs arranged for SATB choir, accompanied by cds to guide choruses toward an "authentic" sound (and, where appropriate, dancing) style. One of the main characteristics of South African folk and traditional music is the syncopated nature of rhythms, which often defy the measure system. An accompanying dance often adds a new rhythmic pattern to the mix, with song and dance together forming a complex and not easily defined rhythmic structure. Because of this, most songs are best understood through careful listening and close observation if one wants to capture the essence of the performance. Recordings and video therefore accompany Folk Rhythm , to assist in this regard, as notation alone cannot adequately capture all these nuances of the rich South African folk music tradition.

Songlist: Dithotonyana, Fiela, Hamba Ka Ncane, Ikhon' I Ndawo, Ithemba Lami, Jo We, Khotso Ya Morena, Khutso, Lesang Magwala A Cheche, Matlakala, Sesi We, Skhandamayeza, Thina, Thina Sizwe E Zi Minyama, Umandela Uth'a Ihlome, The South African National Anthem
