Africa - Music, Art, Science & Literacy

Today the children listened to three different versions of Kum ba Yah, they then got to play and sing using the instruments, they were amazing! This has complimented our African topic showing the children part of their culture, last week we were doing tribal dancing on the playground ... it was quite tricky!

And here are the words to the song:

 

Kum ba yah, my lord, Kum ba yah! 
Kum ba yah, my lord, Kum ba yah! 
Kum ba yah, my lord, Kum ba yah. 
O Lord, Kum ba yah

Someone's crying, Lord, Kum ba yah!
Someone's crying, Lord, Kum ba yah!
Someone's crying, Lord, Kum ba yah! 
O Lord, Kum ba yah

Someone's singing, Lord, Kum ba yah!
Someone's singing, Lord, Kum ba yah!
Someone's singing, Lord, Kum ba yah! 
O Lord, Kum ba yah

Someone's praying, Lord, Kum ba yah!

Someone's praying, Lord, Kum ba yah! 
O Lord, Kum ba yah
