The Lord’s Prayer in Swahili

I’ve listened to music all my life. Most of what is in my collection, ipod, or closet floor is NOT what I would consider art. But every once you find art. Today, I will share one of those with you.

It’s called “Baba Yetu” – a setting of the text of the “Lord’s prayer” in Swahili, by a composer named Christopher Tin. It’s actually a song composed for a computer game, Civilization 4.

And interestingly enough, this song is actually the literal Swahili translation for the most famous Christian prayer of all time.

Thing song is beautiful. Truly a piece of art. Listen or download here.
