These four Ghanaian folk tunes are set in a responsorial style with a caller and a chorus singing mostly unison with occasional optional divisi. The pieces need not be performed in the order in which they are presented and certain sections can be repeated at the director’s (or the caller’s) leisure. I have used this piece both as an opener and a closer at concerts. The score comes complete with percussion parts and choreographic instructions. (Easy)
