In Namibia, singing is ever-present wherever you go. People sing almost everywhere, at work, at celebrations, as a way of expressing joy or sorrow, or as a means of passing on traditional stories by word of mouth. There is a suitable repertoire for every occasion. The songs in this collection are marvellously suitable for part singing without piano accompaniment, both for experiences choirs and for unpractised not-yet-singers. The colourful melodies and the simple but lively arrangements can be learned within a very short time and then performed immediately, for example as a creative contribution to a religious service. At the same time, the musical material is so rich in content that imaginative choirs can develop it into rousing concert pieces. They will find the CD by the UNAM Choir a rich source of ideas.
