Fingerstylefrizz uploaded a piece of music in tribute to African music, which is the basis for most of the music he loves, and asked for additions from whomever got inspired to make them. I decided to try my hand at Swahili again, after 30 years of not really using it, and this is the result. I really like it, though I'm sure my usage or phrasing or something is off - if there are any native Swahili speakers reading this, please let me know!

Carl and I both added our voices to this, though his additions are vocal but non-verbal. smiley

This is ground-breaking for me--I never rated a Swahili song before. Thoroughly enjoyed and fine work by all concerned. By comparing the two, I figured out that asante means "thank you" Checked it out in Merriam Webster and they have a place for comments below the definition and someone said they have that on the Girl Scout cookies, along with some other languages. Asante,
JOE
