Kabusa Oriental Choir – The Corona Virus song

Share

In 2020, as the world grappled with the nascent COVID-19 pandemic, the Kabusa Oriental Choir’s “The Corona Song” emerged, not as a mournful lament, but as a vibrant and infectious anthem of awareness and education. This wasn’t just a song; it was a community rallying cry, a message of hope and unity delivered with the power of uplifting melodies and relatable lyrics.

The song opens with a cheerful tempo, instantly captivating listeners with its infectious energy. The lyrics, sung in a clear and vibrant Swahili, paint a picture of the virus, its symptoms, and its potential dangers. But the delivery is far from fear-mongering. The choir’s playful harmonies and humorous anecdotes soften the message, making it accessible and engaging for all ages.

This playful approach doesn’t diminish the seriousness of the message. The lyrics emphasize preventive measures like handwashing, social distancing, and avoiding crowded places. Phrases like “COVIDUS 1:9 – Beware of thy neighbour’s handshake lest ye CORONate thyself” playfully remind listeners of the importance of personal responsibility while maintaining a lighthearted tone.

The song transcends individual awareness, becoming a collective call to action. The repeated refrain, “Corona, Corona, go away,” becomes a unifying chant, bringing communities together in their fight against the virus. The diverse voices of the choir, young and old, male and female, create a sense of shared responsibility and solidarity, reminding us that we are all in this together.

Okoro be careful

So wash your hand and say hello
Hello my neighbors
No more handshake
No more hugging
No more, until futher notice
