Mangwani is an easily learned, very catchy tune that all young choirs will enjoy. The main melody is restated several times with small additions and alterations added. The accompanying instruments can be as numerous as the choir’s sound can handle. Brief solo “shouts” are also a great opportunity for young singers to test the waters of solo singing.
