Die Matie, Stellenbosch University’s Official Newspaper posted the following performance on their Facebook Page this month to commemorate their win last year at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in Wales.
“Performing Baba Yetu at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod in Wales is one of our favourites” and “here’s to new Matie Music in 2019!” they said on a post they shared a couple of weeks ago.
The SU Choir was awarded first place for the Categories: Mixed Choirs, Youth Choirs and Open Choirs, as well as the ‘Award for Outstanding Conductor’ at the Eisteddfod in July 2018.
The SU Choir is also currently ranked number 1 on the Interkultuur World Choir Rankings (see here).
Baba Yetu is essentially the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili and is the hit theme to Civilization IV – composed by Christopher Tin and featured on the double Grammy-winning album ‘Calling All Dawns’.
