Anne Lister Holding hands and singing 'Kumbaya' (68* d) RE: Holding hands and singing 'Kumbaya' 29 Aug 17


I have used Kumbaya in a voice workshop as it's a song that's easy to remember and add words to (which, in the context of the voice workshop, made a lot of sense). However I was stung to the quick (and reduced to helpless laughter at the same time) by a Mail on Sunday reporter who had attended the venue at which my voice workshop took place (amongst other sessions) and wrote, if I remember correctly, "Grown men wept as Anne strummed along to Kumbaya". Each individual part of that sentence might have been true (some men did shed some tears as part of the whole experience, I did have my guitar with me although my playing style isn't really strumming and we did sing Kumbaya) but put together in a sentence it didn't represent anything I recognised at all. Ah, the Daily Mail and the Mail on Sunday - what a waste of newsprint!
