Joanne Hammil has written many wonderful songs, including part-songs such as rounds and "converging songs". This is one of the latter - inspired by a type of South African song (of which "Somagwaza" is probably the most widely known). Joanne's song features four ostinato parts (short, repeating phrases), which enter at different point in the cycle. Although each of the four parts has its own unique melody, rhythm and lyrics, all the parts come together on the words "one family." Find out more about Joanne Hammil's music at www.joannehammil.com. Jenny played all the percussion parts for this song - a one-women percussion ensemble!
