Product Details


Siyahamba (pronounced: See-yah-hahm-bah), is adapted from a traditional song of the Zulu people, originating in the KwaZulu province of South Africa (now a part of Natal province). With strong ties to the apartheid movement, this tune, with its bold major sixth and seventh leaps, has a resolutely hopeful quality about it. The setting is straightforward, and uses persistent ostinatos in the bass line and percussion parts to provide an energetic background while propelling the theme forward. Several "call and response" patterns that are characteristic of African music have also been incorporated into the musical structure. This title is available in MakeMusic Cloud.
