Homeless – Learning TracksView Craig McLeish's Full Store
A fun yet meaningful song which can be used on all sorts of occasions. Can be used in a concert setting or very effective at an open air festival situation. Always raises a smile from choir members and audience alike.
We suggest you start building up the parts one by one, starting with the Alto.
Knowledge of the original performed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo would be preferable here. Either the conductor or a solo tenor singer from within the choir needs to take the cantor part of Joseph Shabablala and lead the song with interjections. These direct the course of the song, whether you continue singing the repeated verse or go onto the “digging” section, where actions are appropriate. Always finish with a really slow “Homeless” verse.
This is a great song and is minimum effort maximum impact! The cantor part is really lovely to hear. Because we are a choir who gets the giggles we had to change the word ‘dead’ to ‘lost’! Thanks for great music, this is well worth singing- beautiful.
