Si Njay Njay Njay (Mixed Voices)

Thumbnail 240

Voicings: 3 part choir (soprano, alto, combined male-voice part)

Accompaniment: Accompanied

A joyful, exuberant song with an infectious rhythm, Si njay njay njay is easy to learn, as it builds up gradually from just the men, and then men and altos, to all three parts. The second-verse notes are the same, but watch out for the changes of rhythm on ‘Woh mama bagu…’ and ‘babay thanda zah’ (‘thanda’ is pronounced with a hard ‘t’). The optional percussion adds a great deal to this number and, when you are more confident with the notes, you can also sing it completely a cappella – just set the percussion groove going and start singing! The words mean "Everything is possible through prayer; Our mothers ("Wo mama...") used to pray too..."

This piece is part of the Faber Choral Singles series, offering a selection of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the series is arranged for 3-part choir (soprano, alto and a combined male-voice part) providing flexibility for any choir. Complete with straight-forward piano accompaniments supporting the vocal lines, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion – so get exploring and get singing!
