CoverNda wana [level: Medium]
arr. Michael Barrett: Bio and other works | Cameron LaBarr Choral Series
voicing: SATB - T solo | catalog number: SBMP 1389 | duration: 1:55 | price: $2.20
accompaniment: djembe

This song can be seen as a game. It starts off with a single voice part and as the “game” or song progresses, it becomes more complex. It is accompanied by traditional hand clapping and African drums. The piece has a natural build in dynamic and texture as the music is layered with each new entry. It promises to be an exciting addition to a program.

Nda wana (playing)
Nda wana vhana vha tshi khou tam ba
Vha tshi imbelela tshino ni
Vha tshi ri thungununu nemulambo kumedza

Traditional Venda

I found the children playing
while the birds were singing
by the river (mulambo) as they resisted sleep
