In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument

Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho

February 2019

Women of the World

"Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho" is a Negro Spiritual that recounts the biblical story of Joshua, and even as far back as the 1800s, gave a strong sense of hope to African-American slaves that their freedom would soon come. From researching its origins, learning the Moses Hogan version, having Débo Ray adapt it for Women of the World, to finally performing it on stage; this song has evolved into medicine music for us!
