In that spirit of gratitude, here are two African mp3s. The first comes from the audiobook version of South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu's An African Prayer Book. It's the prayer of a truck driver in Ghana.
The second is from Chants Sacres: Voix d'hommes, Voix de femmes released by Naive Records in 2000 but of which I can find no trace on the Web today. It's from a 2-CD anthology of sacred songs from many cultures, one CD of men's voices, one of women. The women's CD features everything from Marion Williams to Les Grandes Voix Bulgares - the track "Gule Wamkulu" is from women in a village in Malawi.
