Russell Robinson first heard Jambo Bwana when Duncan Miano Wambugu started the Africa Choir Pazeni Sauti at the University of Florida in 2009. He recruited Miano as the start of an institutional linkage program between the University of Florida and Kenyatta University. Robinson has arranged this work so that it is faithful to Terry Kalanda Harrison's original imagining of this Kenyan song of peace.  Carl Fischer is excited to share this popular Kenyan/East African song with tenor bass choirs of all sizes and abilities. Also available for Three-Part Mixed Voices (BL926).
