The South African folk classic Siyahamba is authentically treated in this special arrangement for young band. Repeating percussion patterns using tom toms, bass drum, claves, and cowbell keep the African feel moving while syncopated block harmonies round out the accompaniment. Trumpets and flutes get to shine on the opening melody, and in typical African call and response tradition, everyone gets to join in as the arrangement progresses.
