Funga Alafia


Lyrics

Funga alafia,
ashay, ashay (repeat)

Apparently, the more accurate spelling of “funga” is “fanga,” and “ashay” is “asé” (source).

Translation

Funga alafia = Welcome, blessings
Asé = Let it be so, or the English word “amen.”

  1. Hi Beth!
    Do you have sheet music for the first Funga Alafia video? It sounds cool, but I’d love to see it!

    1. Hi Angie!

      I don’t have this Orff arrangement. It looks like it was part of an Orff 2 training class, so someone must own the rights to this arrangement. Maybe it’s even published somewhere. Sorry I can’t be of more help!
