My thanks to the composers of these songs, and the choir directors, vocalists, and musicians associated with this music. My thanks also to the producers and uploaders of these featured videos.
This post provides only a very small sample of this beautiful music. Additional examples can be found on YouTube.
Unfortunately, I only speak & read English. I believe that Swahili is the language used for all or most of the songs featured in this post. It would be great if some visitors to this page would confirm that, and also post in the comment section an English translation for these songs' titles. Thanks in advance!
