      Bwana Nipe Pesa About this piece . . . .    Kenyan Zilizopendwa - Song - Arranged by Evans O. Mbinji  Zilizopendwa (literally, "those which were loved') is a term used in Kenya to refer to early Kenyan popular music, synonymous with the term "golden oldies" as used in the United States. Kiswahili is the national language of Kenyan.All vowel sounds are pure as in Latin. Bwana Nipe Pesa is a Zilizopendwa song that should be performed with enthusiasm, Dance movement, However expressive accents should be given at appropriate points in the musical and textual phrases.     Literal Transalation Bwana nipe pesa –Father give me money Watoto wana njaa – The children are hungry Lakini mke wako- But your wife anapenda kutangatanga – Is a loose lady, who moves with everyone Majirani wanachoka kumuona –Neighbours are tired of seeing her Fungueni milango anakuja – Close all the doors she is coming. Watu wote wa Nairobi,Mombasa – People from Nairobi & Mombasa Wakuona kila siku – They keep seeing you every day. Tafadhali bwana rudi – please father come back.    Percussion Notes    -Improvisation is encouraged. Percussion must never dominate the texture, but rather remain supportive -The piece my be performed a cappella However the effect of the piece will be greatly enhanced by using a variety of improvised percussion instruments like (conga,shakers,claves and rattles) The accompanying ensemble should take care to allow the the choir to be heard.
