A variety of music was presented including folk songs from Canada, Mexico, Cuba, England, Scotland, Ireland, Kentucky, Appalachia and Africa. Two sing-a-longs were This Land Is Your Land (Woody Guthrie),and The Erie Canal. Other songs from famous singers were: Simon and Garfunkel, T-Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello, Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen. Safonia not only use their voices, but also their hands and feet to emphasize some of the music.
One of my favorites was the Harp Singers who separated into four groups. The explanation of Harp Singers left me confused yet I enjoyed it immensely! With no instruments and just their voices the groups sing in their own tone and even though it was said that no experience is needed, that one does not have to be a singer, and that anyone can participate, I disagree! My conclusion is that one has to have a voice to join in the repetitive singing. A beautiful afternoon with the harmonizing voices of Safonia.
