About: 24 Otjiherero Concert Songs

24 Otjiherero Concert Songs is a collection of popular concert songs connected to the lives of young Namibian people, whether at school, in hostels, in their families or in their communities. The songs tell stories of parental love, the difficulties of learning and of getting wayward children to study, the pain of growing into adulthood, the search for true love, and the beauty of the Herero land and culture. The series is primarily intended to be used in schools, and certain innovations have been made in the notation to enable teachers and students to sing the songs in class. The CD contains recordings made at various primary and secondary schools in Namibia. In earlier years, little musicological research was carried out in Namibia, with the result that a wealth of orally transmitted songs has been irretrievably lost. 24 Otjiherero Concert Songs is an attempt to record both the music and the lyrics of some of the most popular concert songs among the Herero. The cover illustration was desinged by Joseph Madisia.
