CoverSiyalobola Gogo [level: Medium]
arr. Michael Barrett: Bio and other works | Cameron LaBarr Choral Series
voicing: SATB/2 T solos | catalog number: SBMP 1359 | duration: 3:20 | price: $2.15
accompaniment: a cappella

This is a piece about "lobola" - the method in which traditional cultures pay for their brides (usually with cattle and herd: the prettier the wife, the more cows the family will demand). In this interpretation, two guys are interested in the same girl - so they try to "out bid" each other by singing (hence the music rising up by a tone each time). At the end, a third singer joins - he is not from the same culture, but also likes the bride in question.

We are here to pay lobola (bridal dowry) for a beautiful woman.
Wipe away your tears and be consoled.
Your daughter will be my wife.
Look and see, for soon you will be my mother-in-law.
