Fanga or Funga
However you spell it. It's FUN.
We start all of our children's programs with Funga. Funga is a traditional welcome song in the African language Yoruba. Loosely translated the words mean:
Fungi Alafia - Hello or welcome. Be at peace.
Ashe - So be it. Let it be so.
The song was sung in villages to welcome visitors and at the library we continue to do the same.
The actions mean:
Arms over head making a peaked roof - You are welcome in this (my) place.
Arms wrapped around oneself like a hug - I welcome you with my heart and I am happy to see you.
Arms spread wide - There is nothing here to trick or hurt you.
