One Family Song Download with Lyrics

One Family
Two of a Kind
Mp3 Song Download with Lyrics
words & music by Joanne Hammil, © 1999 JHO Music

Joanne Hammil has written many wonderful songs, including part-songs such as rounds and "converging songs". This is one of the latter - inspired by a type of South African song (of which "Somagwaza" is probably the most widely known). Joanne's song features four ostinato parts (short, repeating phrases), which enter at different point in the cycle. Although each of the four parts has its own unique melody, rhythm and lyrics, all the parts come together on the words "one family." Jenny played all the percussion parts for this song - a one-women percussion ensemble!

Demo MP3 Listen to a sample of this song.

1. We - may disagree, but we are - one family.
2. One family, with many different voices
3. The world is one family, to protect and love
4. One world, one world, one world, one family.
