Description

Commissioned in 2012 by the Penicuik Silver Band, Maneno Ya  is a hymn with a difference.  The band wanted to include an African influenced work within thier concert programme and commissioned Maneno Ya from brass and winc band composer Dan Price.

The name Maneno Ya (pronounced Mah-Neh-Noh - Yah) is Swahili and translates as ‘song' hence the subtitle of the piece - A ‘Song' of Africa.

The work has four percussion parts but other than the drum kit part, these are optional. Percussion can play a large role in this piece if desired with parts doubled or improvised over to create a more authentic sound.

This is an approachable concert item which any band could play and enjoy.
