This exciting, uplifting anthem for SATB voices captures the energy of a community working together for the benefit of all. A traditional Swahili (Kijita) text is paired with an English paraphrase of the Kijita proverb: It takes a village to raise a child. Consider a multigenerational ensemble for a striking interpretation of the message.
