As we promised, we finally upload some audio files extracted from the videos. Unfortunately, the Internet connection here is too slow to upload videos, so you will have to use your imagination… we do provide photos taken from the videos to help you!
This post has 3 music files recorded during our workshops in Cyangugu, on the first week of our trip.
1. A song that the participants of the youth training sang for us.

2. The song that was written by one of the groups (4 girls) during the exercise to write words to a given melody, and to adjust the melody to their own musical tradition.

3. The famous sima-ma-ka song, sung by more than 200 children at the St. Mathew’s Primary School (you can hear our incredible companion, Ephraim, who was filming, singing and encouraging the children!)
