Writing new songs for the Maninka.

By January 12, 2004

Guinea (MNN)–Less than seven weeks ago, indigenous worship music was a dream to Maninka believers in Guinea.

SIM gathered a group together to partake in a Maninka Worship and Songwriting Seminar. The goal of the seminar was to combine worship teaching with basic ethnomusicology principles to facilitate the writing of new indigenous Christian songs.

Throughout the day, those attending received teaching on worship, and composed and recorded new songs. Since this date, a cassette has been made containing forty songs – some older ones, but many new ones written during and since the seminar.

Please pray that God would continue to give the Maninka new songs and help them to truly live their whole lives in worship to Him.
