Chanda Mama

The Grade 4/5 Outreach Choir is learning a song from India called "Chanda Mama". We first heard the song through Playing For Change.

You can visit their website for more information and videos!

Chanda Mama is a lullaby from India, and the translation is as follows:

Chanda Mama, Chanda Mama, ravaiya,     Uncle Moon, Uncle Moon, please come,
Nannu ettukuni muddhu ladu kovaiya.       Take me into your hands and give me
                                                                     a kiss.
Maralu nemeni chesina,                              When I was mischievous,
Garalu neeve choopina.                               You showed me kindness and love.

Want to practice at home? Here you go!!
