We love South African songs! The combination of beautiful harmonies, meaningful words, and soulful movements is unique in world music. And it’s acappella!

Val Rogers, a vibrant workshop leader from Eugene, introduced us to this song form. Over the years we have learned many wonderful songs and movements from her. Check out her website at valrogers.org.
