A Musical Shot of Endorphins

Karen, whom I mentioned in my post about fists, once advised me to compile a list of things that make me happy or lift my spirits.

Because I am a woman, those things only work from day to day (sorry, men, you'll never figure us out), although I've found one happy pill that hasn't failed yet.

Listen to this vibrant Swahili song, "Baba Yetu," the lyrics of which are The Lord's Prayer.
I'm serious! Listen! You won't regret it:

Go to "Samples." Then, go to the first item on the list, "Civilization IV" (yes, there are two so-titled links, and it's the first).

Hope you share my happy!


  1. Ooooo! Great use of voices and drum and rhythym.

    I know I wouldn't mind driving down the highway with this song filling the cab of my little truck, loud.

    Thanks for sharing it! I enjoying hearing music of other cultures/countries/peoples.

  2. P.S. - I know I can't spell rhythm. :P *shrug*

  3. This music is beautiful!
    How did you find it?

  4. Chris found it, somehow... :-)

    Baba Yetu is one song on the album "Calling All Dawns" by Christopher Tin, which we now happily own! The album is a song cycle--all the songs fit together--that represents day, night and dawn. The music comprises several languages and cultural styles! It's fantastic!
