Hamba vangeli

"Hamba vangeli" is a protest song from South Africa: Freedom is coming. Spread the new word.

This song forms part of the Alexander L'Estrange's work Zimbe! that City of Dunedin Choir will be presenting at the concert in early September this year.

Sung here by a group from Soweto, Johannesburg.

Interestingly - the rhythms on some of these songs (which of course are from a variety of choirs) are 'different' to the rhythms we are singing. Flexibility!

Yes John, this is true. Also keep in mind that the L'Estrange versions we are singing are his arrangements of traditional songs.
