Thuma mina

"Thuma mina" is a traditional South African funeral song: Send me, Lord; Lead me, Lord.

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.

This arrangement is by Junior Howell and Desmond Waithe originally for the La Petite Musical. In this recording Eastern Youth Chorale of Trinidad and Tobago has decided to perform the piece accompanied by non melodic percussion (african drums) to bring an authentic Afro nuance to the work.
