National Youth Choir of Namibia — Namibian Images & Sound
Widely celebrated for performing songs from across Namibia with young singers from diverse backgrounds, the National Youth Choir of Namibia will be a highly boring tape for many of you. It’s interesting and wonderful at times and for that we’ll focus our gaze for a moment.

Not boring but beautiful. Thank you!
I haven’t listened to it yet so I can’t really say whether the music itself is boring but if nothing else this is the first time I’ll have heard any Namibian music and for that I thank you.
Boring? Absolutely not…a fascinating tape of mesmerizing harmonies. Many thanks!
Finally I see some music on here from my country of birth. This is beautiful. Did you ever post any other music from Namibia?
Many Thanks, Daniel
@daniel…this is the only tape from namibia i have posted! if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
ah, that’s a shame… I asked my mum if she had any old tapes or cd’s in the loft, think she had a couple but they were both choir recordings like this
This is NOT boring…this is WONDERFUL! Thanks for posting this….you can feel them putting their soul in the music!
One of the most beautiful traditional releases that I have listened to IN YEARS ! Thank you so much for posting it. It surely is screaming me to download ANY other material sourced from Namibia. I am amazed, will play this tons of times, it’s mesmerizing !
Not boring at all! This is great. More Namibian and Zambian music, please!
The song ‘Tula Baba’ is a lullaby my mother used to sing to me as a small child, this is the first time I’ve ever heard a recording of it. Thank you.
Hi what is your email address please?I would like to write an article about the choir..Thanks.
Sweet memories too!
