This is the popular tune originally written by Christopher Tin, heard in the game Civilization IV. It is also part of a larger work by Tin called
"Calling All Dawns." This arrangement is based on Tin's original orchestral setting, but modified for treble a cappella voices, with the singers covering all the instrumental parts as well as the beautiful Swahili lyrics. CELLO has been added to this arrangement to fill out the low tones and complement the treble voices. The SOLO part is written in the treble clef and meant for a strong alto with ability to belt, but can also be sung an octave higher with a soprano, or sung by a guest tenor perhaps. Please feel free to adapt to suit your needs. Available through third-party vendor (see links below).
