Children's Songs from Kenya

Children's Songs from Kenya

D. N. Nzomo explains in the liner notes to Children’s Songs from Kenya that “music in traditional Africa has many functions. As a medium of education, it conveys accumulated wisdom from generation to generation.” Some of the songs on the 1975 album serve as allegories, while others are straightforward tunes for certain occasions, such as the harvest. They also embody the playfulness of children’s music. Liner notes include a written introduction to each song, which is also spoken at the beginning of each track, as well as song lyrics written in Swahili and English.
