I would like to hear your guys opinions/thoughts on this song.


Baba Yetu is a Swahili rendition of the "Lord's Prayer" and the composer Christopher Tin made it for the computer game Civilization IV. It won a grammy, I think it is the only song for a video game that won a grammy award.

I found the sheet music for this piece - transcribed for Voice & piano at our music store a few days ago. It's fairly simple technically but I'd imagine you can interpret it in many ways.

Awesome video.

After watching it I searched for "baba yetu piano" on youtube and enjoyed watching one by ModestOne and another by John Shin.

Good luck with it!

if someone could ever tell me what the other african music is in the CIV for PS3 Id eat my shoes. It's kids and adults singing in unison and its so incredibly funky. Lots of percussion going on.
