For Physical Copy £5.50 (Including P&P)

Order from Penny directly. Email: penny@open2sound.co.uk

Description:

2 vocal parts with additional 'Call', piano accompaniment, guitar chords, drum / xylophone. Useful in Schools / Community, for choirs and activity groups. Suitable for assemblies / performances / special occasions, or in the home - just for fun! A lively song to celebrate life and encourage Ujima: ‘working together for common good’. The easy chorus encourages audience participation.

This song was originally inspired by an old Tarzan film I saw as a child! Tarzan explained what ‘Ujima’ meant to Jane and the word / ethos, has stuck with me ever since. Nearly forty years later… I was asked to write a song for a ‘whole-school celebration, to involve the audience and inspire co-operation’. So I used the idea for this song.

Original recordings of the song, sung by staff and pupils of Knighton School 2000, are available on CD and MP3.
