Music and words Traditional, from the Caribbean

Listen to Halle sung by workshop participants at Big Sing in the Desert 2014, recorded at Ross River Homestead, Northern Territory.

It’s good to have some songs with only a few easy words to learn and a few parts. Everyone can learn a simple song quickly, whether it’s in their language or not, and then sing it out joyously, with confidence. In only a few minutes it can bring a group of singers together to sound like a choir.

Halle is that kind of song. With sounds and rhythm from the Caribbean, it also encourages us to dance. And if someone isn’t feeling too good, it’s a great song to sing to them to lift their spirits.
