Siyahamba (another version)

There are a lot of versions of everyone's favorite song from the church (and struggle) of the Global South. You saw the bishops of the Global Center dancing to it, now hear this a cappella choir sing it. (Those bishops from Latin America were at the time in South Africa, birthplace of Siyahamba. If Wikipedia is right, which it isn't always, the song has an interesting history.

And this one's from Zambia, also a cappella.

You can also hear an energetic version here. (You'll have to press the Media Player link, the MP3 doesn't work.) I think it's by the Swedish group that originally took it North! But the real treat is the YouTube I am about to post.
