From the Republic of Congo, this wonderfully rhythmic traditional African folk tune is sung in the Lingala language. The lyric joyfully expresses the angelic announcement of the birth of Emmanuel and conveys a message of hope for the world. Percussion is included in this great multicultural selection for Christmas.
