Awa Yombei

Music by traditional, lyrics by traditional (arrangement by Jay Sand)

A rather nonsensical yet catchy “African play song” from The Gambia in West Africa in which the kids clap, sing and mimic each other while dancing. “Awa Yombei” is the name of girl who, in the course of the song, we follow in her marching, jumping and flying around.
