Che Che Koolay


Kye Kye Kule (pronounced “chay chay koolay”) is mostly likely originally from Ghana. We’ve read in a couple of places that this song is from the Ghanian Fanti Tribe. The Fanti Tribe speaks Fanti and Twi. This song is sung all over the world. There are many different spellings: “Kye Kye Kule”, “Che Che Kule”, “Shay Shay Kooley”, “Che Che Koolay”, “Che che Cole”, etc. (source)

  1. This is a body identification song.
    Hands on your head
    Hands on your shoulders
    hands on your waist
    Hands on your knees
    Hands on your ankles
