Twelve of Ella’s call-and-response songs with simple rhythmic sounds and lyrics in English and Swahili. Inspired by music of communities and Ella’s experiences in Kenya and Tanzania. Includes On Safari, Counting in Swahili, and Yemayah. "This is my favorite Jenkins collection. Jambo ('Hello' in Swahili) has only 9 words...But once you hear it, you'll never forget it...I play this tape when I'm driving—even without the kids. Grade A" —Entertainment Weekly
