Fanga Alafia is a traditional welcoming dance from Liberia. Fanga means something like welcome or blessings and asé (pronounced ashay) means something like amen or let it be so.
Follow along with this video to hear some of the song with those words as well as some dancing moves that correspond.
Then you can take a listen to the performance of our orchestra version and do some of the dance moves you learned in the previous video along with the music! Our orchestra is joined by dancers from Cleo Parker Robinson Dance in this performance.
