This South African song is believed to have originated during the difficult Apartheid years and performed as a peaceful protest song. Tuba is translated as "a dove," and the call and response texture makes reference to the story of Noah and the dove that brought an olive branch after the great flood to signify that the worst is over. The baritone soloist presents the initial melody while the choir builds the harmonic structure in rhythmic excitement. Improvised percussion and vocal ululation are encouraged!
arr. Michael Barrett - Walton Music
