This song (recorded by by Thomas Mapfumo) means a "very strong person" and is about someone who has no relatives and no support. One has to be very strong to carry on. This song welcomes this strong person and says "Come dance and show us your stuff". It was sung during the liberation struggle in Zimbabwe to welcome rebels who had come out of the bush to a changed reality. Fun marimba parts.
Student Materials: A standard set of 7 marimbas will be available for this workshop.
