Dhimiki is a new resource we have long needed. It gives us a tremendous new way to bring young people into the living, breathing vitality of other cultures. Imani has gathered authentic songs and stories from India, SeneGambia and Brazil and brings us into those foreign lands with playful rhythms and irresistible melodies that every child will want to learn and sing to discover the feeling of young people in another land. This book is an invaluable new way to bring cultural awareness into young lives.


The lyrics in these chants and songs shared express the deep need to connect with unseen forces that seem to guide us all. These influences encourage us to work together in the community as one people and to appreciate all living creation. The inspiration comes from people with unique cultures who use the force of their beliefs, through poetry and song, to provide hope, respect, love, responsibility and dignity.
