Voices only: ‘Siyahamba (We are Marching in the Light of God)’

Baxter Institute students sing in English, Spanish and Zulu

Welcome to Voices only, our weekly spotlight on all things a cappella.

How about this for a multilingual melange of melodiousness?

Students at Baxter Institute, a ministry training school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, associated with Churches of Christ, sing an a cappella rendition of “Siyahamba.” The song is a South African hymn that translates as “we are walking” or “we are marching.” In English, the lyric is “we are marching in the light of God.”

Baxter’s chorus, led by director and Cuban native Yariel Olivera, sings the hymn in Zulu, English and Spanish. The singers represent Churches of Christ in Nicaragua, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Honduras.
