Sifa Choir’s Voices of Praise, Richness, and Beauty (Video)

Article by Abena

Happy Tuesday Beautiful People,

Let me introduce you to Sifa, an accapella women’s group based in Ottawa, Canada. I heard them for the first time last week at a book launch.  Speaking with Sifa’s Director, Neema Mugala afterwards, she told me that there has been an upsurge of African Dance throughout the US and Canada ( mostly the US) but not as much African singing. Sifa appear to be tackling that gap by singing in 15 different languages.

Here’s one song they sans without lyrics. The group asked the audience what we thought they were singing about. What do you hear?
